It's a beautiful country town about twenty minutes from Rutland. I think someone took over the store already, but it's worth checking into.
I have been meaning to go to Back Home Again. Sheryl raised my curiousity about it in one her previous posts. I've been trying to stay away from Rutland because everytime I get too close to a TJMaxx I want to spend money. The temptation would be just too much for me!

LOL!! TJ is one of the only places I occasionally buy a new (versus used) piece of clothing now and then. :-) (Okay, jokers, I only buy new underwear and socks -- organic, too!)

About Back Home Again, they close at 3 pm on Fridays and reopen Monday morning around 11 am. Their sabbath is Friday sundown to Saturday sundown, and they take Sundays off. So don't show up on the weekend and be disappointed!

When you say used clothing are you talking about "The Mission"? Someone took my husband there a few weeks ago and when he came home you would have thought he won the lottery!! He bought a brand new pair of jeans for $7.00. Funny isn't it....we don't blink an eye if we have to spend double the amount on a better cat food but for ourselves we watch every penny.
I didn't know that BHA was not open on the weekend...thanks for letting me know.

LOL! Sounds just like the priorities in our household. :-)

The Mission is a good one. Camille's on the east side of Merchants Row just north of West Street is great. Also the Salvation Army Thrift Store on Field Avenue just off Route 7 North (just south of Godnick's Furniture & Ace Hardware). Oh, and there's the Good Cents thrift store on the corner of West Street & Court Street.

Happy bargain-hunting! :-)

We have two properties that are commercially zoned...one in Hubbardton and the other over the border in NY.......I have lived in Rutland County all my life....and can try to link you with potential properties of interest to you. It sounds like a business venture is of interest to you. There may be lake establishments for sale that would offer the budding entrepreneur a challenge in the tourist industry.

Default Vermont Employment

Don't know if you have considered the NEK but it's beautiful here. The big employer in this area is Homeland Security. Lot's of people up here from as far away as Arizona. They'll also be expanding in the near future.

Come up and see if the area you are interested in is what you want. What you get in pictures or what you think an area may be like in your head can be very different from reality. You may love the area or you may find that it's not for you. As stated in a previous post rent when you first move here and make sure you will have a job or income to support your family. The job market and/or good pay is tough. Some people get used to the winters and for others it's the deal breaker. If you rent and find that the long winter is to tough or the cultural change is difficult you are only tied down for a year. With the tough economic forcast there is much to think about. Good luck.
