Owner Melissa Michelle Howe has bought the yellow one-story building at Main and Maple, once home to a Vermont crafts shop, painted it a deep blue and set up several highly workable spaces, especially suitable to her popular ladies nights and Sip N Paint classes.

Howe says, “Now we will have a Party Room, where it will be ready to go for canvas and pottery birthday parties at all times, leaving plenty of space for walk-in business.” She added that “We also feel our business is the type that needs visibility on the main road, and we love the idea of being down in the Main Street district.”

Howe said she’ll be extending hours in the fall to include Sundays. Its telephone number remains: 802-875-2008.

    Endless Creations is owned by my best friend. Thanks for highlighting her in the Telegraph. Unfortunately, you have her name wrong in the article.
    Her name is Melissa Howe, NOT Michelle.
    Perhaps you could publish a clarification.
    Thank you.
