About

Tucked away in a cabin on the northern most island on Vermont’s Lake Champlain, Nook & Cranny Gift Shop in Isle LaMotte, is a mother-daughter owned and run business. With a love for decorating, crafting, yard sales, and spending time together as a family, a business was born. In June of 2007 we first opened our doors to our summer seasonal shop with much praise and appreciation. It was only inevitable that we would be soon sharing our love for crafting and the arts with the world via the web.

Nook & Cranny is a little bit of everything from country, folk and primitive to vintage, Victorian and cottage. The shop itself is homage to everything we love. What is uniquely different about us is our approach. With a slogan of bringing back Old Vermont, we try to use and reuse materials and items we find second hand.

Tucked away in a cabin on the northern most island on Vermont’s Lake Champlain, Nook & Cranny Gift Shop in Isle LaMotte, is a mother-daughter owned and run business.

Nook & Cranny is a little bit of everything from country, folk and primitive to vintage, Victorian and cottage. The shop itself is homage to everything we love. What is uniquely different about us is our approach. With a slogan of bringing back Old Vermont, we try to use and reuse materials and items we find second hand. We lovingly shop at yard sales, flea markets, rummage sales, auctions, and thrift stores to find our items to both keep costs down and be conscious about what we contribute to the planet. We are very proud of what we are able to accomplish by using items second hand. Not only is this “green,” but it makes for one of a kind crafts that are uniquely of our own design.

Mom is an old soul with a passion for all that antique and vintage. She is the driving forced behind our inspirations. By far she is the queen of coming up with all our ideas. She jokes that the only thing she’ll spend $30 on without a blink of an eyelash is a crafting, altered-art magazine. Her daughter helps bring the business into focus and loves to shop for “treasures” more than she spends her time crafting. However, the daughter does have a few things up her sleeves and still manages to surprise her mom on a regular basis with some of the more outrageous and youthfully inspired crafts. Halloween, that is her passion!

Together, they bring all that Nook & Cranny is into reality. Not only is it relaxing and enjoyable to craft, but when you can spend those moments with your mom, your daughter or your friend, those are treasured moments forever. We hope that you are able to see the passion, the love, and the bond that is in our crafts. We’re certain that you’ll be able to find something for you or someone that you love.
