    I am not sure why this place gets such raving reviews. It is just a nice gift shop. Expensive. Not much to choose from: ample "artistic" looking chachkas with minimal creativity. Appropriately located...  more »

    Every time I visit Church Street I pop into Frog Hollow, even briefly, just to soak in the atmosphere rich in talent. Sometimes I purchase; sometimes not. I just love to look at the works of all the T...  more »

    Great place if you enjoy wasting money. Most of this stuff is way over priced, trying to suck money out of tourist from out of state, trying to show off "Vermont Crafts" to their friends. It's kind of like tourist buying the crap they sell at "Basketville" in Putney and Manchester VT., which by the way most their junk is imported from China and other parts of the world. Really a two hundred dollar backgammon board made from two dollars worth of wood and a dollars worth of hardware, and all because someone from Vermont spent a few hours putting it together. But I guess if I could get one of those rich snobs from out of state to pay the price why not. I gave it one star because you have to mark at least one.

    If you have unlimited resources this is a great place to shop. There are some beautiful pieces of pottery and some furniture and jewelry and a lot of prints, framed and unframed. Everything is incredibly expensive. I kept chiding myself, "This is art. You are paying for art not just wood and clay." Some of the "art" really was beautiful. Like the $6000 chair. To me that really is a masterpiece. Having said that, I will also tell you that a chair really isn't a chair if no one is allowed to sit in it and sadly, for that price, I think that would be the case. Then there are the prints. Many, many pretty and pleasant photographs, nicely matted and framed,but I just can't imagine paying $600 for a nicely framed picture that I could take myself. Again, some were truly art, but in my opinion, most were just good photos. We did buy two instrumental cd's recorded by a Vermont musician. They were $15 each and quite good. Overall though, I left feeling like maybe if I sharpen my camera skills just a little I could make a little extra cash. It's great to support local artists but unless that artist is highly acclaimed, completely unique or the creator of something you just can't live without, I think they are maybe a bit overpaid in this case.

    This place is great. You will find some of the most authentic and inspiring art local to Vermont here. It is not cheap, but it is worth it to support the local artists who are extremely talented. The works you find here are unique to this part of New England; you will not find it elsewhere so if you like it get it. Hand blown glass is a popular item.

    I am a local devotee of Frog Hollow and have been since the 1970's. It is so gratifying to support VT artists by giving their wares as gifts for weddings, anniversaries and other special occasions. Finely designed and executed art and craft pieces are cherished for decades if not longer. The staff is knowledgeable, helpful, friendly and very respectful. It is a pleasure going into the store or viewing the website just for a visual treat. Thank you Frog Hollow for always having something extremely special to give to the special people in my life... ...including myself!
