Bring home some of New England's finest goods and crafts with only a few stops. Open since 1886, F.H. Gillingham and Sons is one of the nation's best classic general stores. Besides the expected bottle of syrup, buy a mandolin or some handmade pewter. Don't bypass the wine cellar. Woodstock Sports sells the locally made Ibex clothing for serious hikers and skiers. At their eponymous boutique on Route 4, Charles Shackleton turns out custom furniture from the finest woods, while wife Miranda Thomas crafts glazed pottery that Bill Clinton gave as State gifts.
