The Inside Scoop

Reminisce … and enjoy a treat from the ice cream parlor / soda fountain while meandering the nooks and crannies of an antique shop in an 1840s building …

The vintage oak and marble counters at The Inside Scoop evoke memories of an era gone-by. Together with the antique soda fountain, they were moved from an old ice cream parlor in southern Vermont and customized to fit perfectly in our 1840s building. Stepping into The Inside Scoop will definitely make you feel like you are strolling down Memory Lane!
