So what is ShopVT?

ShopVT 2014 was started by us (BurlingtonVT Moms Blog) and Try Vermont First, and seeks to showcase outstanding Vermont businesses, producers, artists, authors, and more. It’s a campaign committed to reminding consumers to spend their dollars locally this holiday season. Not only do we share great gift ideas, all from local businesses, but we also give you the chance to WIN THEM ALL!

This year we have over 55 businesses participating with over 35 giveaway packages valued at almost $4,000!

Our hope is to continue to raise awareness about all the great local businesses around us and remind us all to spend our holiday dollars locally this season.

ShopVT 2014 has it’s own website this year and can be found at The giveaways will run through November 24th and all winners will be announced on the 25th.

Happy (local) shopping!


  1. I’ve been to the circus for several years in a row no with my own kids (aspiring circus performers), and even saw Smirkus when I was a kid!

  2. I was wondering if anybody else was having issues subscribing to the VT City Mom’s Blog newsletter. I submit my info but I never receive any kind of confirmation e-mail. I’ve checked my junk folder as well, but nada. I’ve tried multiple times but it never seems to work. Just want to make sure those entries count for the giveaway!

  3. As a passionate Vermonter, I try to always buy locally and locally made products. I want to support Vermonters and Americans. I can’t wait to try some of the featured products that I am not familiar with.

  4. Thanks for designing such a wicked cool campaign. This sure does make VT stand out even more as the best place in the world. Look at all of the cool things our people produce!!! AMAZING!
    Gift inspiration everywhere!

  5. We had photos done of the kids when the boys were born in July but they’ve already grown so much – would love to get some new shots. 🙂

  6. Today I’m excited about the Cedar mug. I know the perfect person to give this to for a gift. Each day I have a favorite. Way too many to post just one.

  7. We LOVE going to Kid City! The staff are awesome, there are so many great toys, and there are always such happy kids running around playing together. $50 would put a lot under the Christmas tree!

  8. Would love to win the tickets to the Polar Express! I have a two year old who I am hoping to take for his first time ever! I know he will LOVE it!

  9. I love Vermont gifts to support my (until my recent move) state. I especially love the idea of gifts that give back where I can give gifts that my loved ones will love but can also benefit other organizations in the process as well. Isn’t generosity what the holidays are about?

  10. This will be my first Winter/Holiday Season in Vermont and It would be so exciting to win! I can’t wait to shop locally for all my gifts!

  11. Last time I had a haircut was about a month ago… but since the baby was born, the new “norm” appears to be every 6 months.. I just don’t have time anymore!

  12. We love giving back during the holiday by donating toys to the kids at the children’s hospital and food to the local food shelf.

  13. I would love a get away with hubby at the Wildflower. And Junipers has the best burgers. In the summer burger and beer night is the best!

  14. I have never been to Circus Smirkus! I would love to go with my girls and niece and nephew this summer! Crossing my fingers I win that prize 🙂

  15. My kids have been several times on the Polar Express. We are so blessed to have that in our back yard! Gathering our family and friends to all go together is a wonderful Christmas memory! I would LOVE to win passes 🙂

  16. So many great prizes to win. If I had to choose one as a top contender the earthy soul massage would be it. I had one with her last pregnancy and she was amazing. This time it would be a post natal massage and I would love to win that!

  17. Wow, what a list! I’m most excited to win the bra fitting at Aristelle (which I hope comes w/ a bra because what they carry is luxurious!) Or the haircut w/ Justin at Salon Cruz. All of the gifts are fabulous, you really included something for everyone!
