Going to Woodstock

When we were planning this trip I suggested we go to Woodstock VT. One of their friends got excited because she thought there was only one Woodstock were the music festival was held in the 60’s. She asked Dany to bring her back a Jimi Hendrix t-shirt. For those of us who live in the states we know that there is a Woodstock in every state.

Our best bet was here.


It’s the oldest General store in Vermont. It had lots of great little trinkets in it but no Jimi Hendrix t-shirt.  There was no way we’d find one here.IMG_2840

So we took to the back roads trying to trying to find Yasgur’s farm.


This wasn’t it but I’m sure it’s a lot prettier then Yasgur’s farm was during the festival. On the way back we found a Christmas store that looked like it had some nice stuff in it. Dany found a Christopher Radko Nutcracker ornament that she had to justify buying (because it was really cute).

This isn’t the exact same ornament but I searched and searched (for at least 5 min) for the same one and couldn’t find it. Anyways, we named the nutcracker Jimi Hendrix. So if you know a TSA agent who tells a story of a crazy woman from Germany not letting him open her package because it’s Jimi Hendrix—well you know where it came from.

We also stopped in Quechee VT to one of my favorite places-Simon Pearce. It’s a place where they blow glass and make pottery. They have the most beautiful things but they do tend to be pricey. So whenever I go I just get one thing.

Just wanted to let you know that Jimi Hendrix made it home safely (including his icecream that I bought him in Boston - looking forward to this part of your series.)
