The Pick and Shovel is a maze of aisles where you’ll find just about anything, because if we don’t have it you don’t need it.

We’re an adventure, not just a hardware store. You’ve never seen a place like this before. Our clerks not only walk you to what you came for, they’ll answer every question along the way. There are too many of them to introduce here, and we’d like to meet you in person anyway.

We’ve been The Pick and Shovel since 1975, but we’ve been operating businesses out of this block of buildings since before our great-grandfather can remember.

Get Lost at The Pick and Shovel Vermont’s Wicked Wonderful not so General Store.
