10 Small Businesses That You Should Consider Supporting

According to the Small Business Administration, there were 29.6 million small businesses in the U.S in 2015. These businesses make up over 99% of all businesses in America. Small businesses are the foundation of our economy, providing jobs and support for the local economy in which they were created.

Of course, we would appreciate our readers supporting Ammonoosuc Goods, but in this article, I am highlighting 10 small businesses that you should consider supporting.

(Disclaimer: This post is not sponsored. These are businesses we love and want to support)

This list is limited to 10 of our favorites and is no way complete.

Gather Together Cafe

Gather Together Cafe - A great addition to our quaint little town to grab a coffee and a bite to eat. The atmosphere is inviting and modern with friendly service that will always end with a smile. The cafe was kind enough to carry a few of our products. We suggest grabbing a popover and an iced latte. Don't forget to bring in your reusable mug, they will surely fill it up for you. Stop by and tell Erin that we sent you.

Cash Only Vintage

Cash Only Vintage - Vintage clothing store that stocks retro clothing in unbelievable condition. Joel is well known for stocking a large variety of Levi’s denim jackets. I picked up my 70’s era Levi jacket from him about a year ago and could not be happier. If you find something you like, grab it quick before someone else does!

Vermont Flannel Company - If you have been reading our articles you most likely have seen our post about these guys. Read our Article HERE. By far our favorite maker of flannel shirts. The fit is spot on and they are made in Vermont, no better combination. But Vermont Flannel Company makes more than just flannel shirts. Their variety of unique flannel options span wide and we challenge you to check them out.

Common Deer -- An incredible retail store in Burlington, VT. Owned and operated by the Beal’s who value American manufacturing and put an emphasis on local makers. All of the products in their store are U.S.A made. Walking into the store you are immediately greeted by a friendly face. You will have no problem finding the best gift for anyone at Common Deer, plus it is only a short walk from Church Street Marketplace.

Smith’s Leather Balm - If you own anything leather you need a way to condition it. Take a look at your current leather conditioning products and read the label. The combination of harmful ingredients might scare you. Thankfully the Smith’s have staked their claim on an all natural leather conditioner made up of 3 ingredients.

---

Crumb Bar - Easily some of the best pasties that we have ever had the pleasure of eating. Crumb Bar recently opened up a storefront on Main St in Littleton and every day you can guarantee that they will be selling out of almost every pastry they make. Formally known as Crumb Bum, they got their start selling at Littleton Farmers Market. Known for selling out in hours, we recommend getting there as soon as they open. Our favorites are the carnival cookies, macarons, and specialty croissants.

---

Schilling Beer Company - Offering delicious brews with even more delicious food to pair with it. They offer creative pizza choices with an ever-rotating list of seasonal brews on tap. Located right next to the Ammonoosuc River, off Main St. in Littleton, NH. You can quickly see why we enjoy this place.

---

Johnson Woolen Mills - Creators of timeless wool pieces for over 175 years. Johnson Wool jackets have been a family tradition for as long as we can remember. These products take a beating and stand up to the coldest days of winter. Wool is more versatile and durable than many give credit. Johnson Wool also makes other great items like mittens and bags. Go traditional, you will not be disappointed.

---

Ragged Mountain Equipment - Producers of premier outdoor gear and apparel right in Intervale, NH. Ragged Mountain Equipment has the gear you need for your next outdoor adventure. Their products come in a variety of combinations. Each piece is specialized for the activity at hand, such as hiking, canoeing, or rock climbing.

Lonesome Woods

Lonesome Woods - This antique shop could very well be the most interesting place I have ever stepped foot into. Ran by second-generation owner Nick, he is as much a part of the store as the antiques. When you walk in you are instantly greeted and welcomed. Candles are always lit, records are always playing, and in the winter a fire warms the store from the fireplace. Give yourself plenty of time to look around because you could be here for hours.
