Where the heck was TB?

TB loves exploring places near and far, so we’ve created a weekly game where TB goes on an adventure, snaps some photos, and then lets you guess her location.

Where in the heck is TB is back!

Last Month, TB & Miranda spent a weekend in Vermont doing some book research. They stopped at a small town because it has one of TB’s favorite shops. TB loves tourist traps and this store is one of the absolute best.

Given the town’s Hallmark Christmas movies vibe, we snapped photos of Lost Without a Claus by Kaya LaSalle.

Here are some clues about the town.

1. The town is in Windsor County, Vermont and the population is a little over 600.

2. It’s nestled within the Green Mountain National Forest and has three brooks, making it a picturesque spot.

3. The Weston Playhouse Theatre Company, Vermont’s oldest professional theatre, was founded in the town in 1935.

4. In 1946, Vrest and Ellen Orton started the Vermont Country Store (this is the shop TB loves!).

5. Agriculture, especially organic farming and dairy products, contribute to the town’s income.

Here are some photos of the town, including snaps of Lost Without a Claus by Kaya LaSalle.

Time to vote on the name of the Vermont town.

Polls close on December 7. The answer will be revealed on December 9.

Wishing all of you a wonderful weekend!

Miranda & TB
