The people of Vermont Eclectic Compay love Vermont. They also love a great t-shirt. Thus was born the Vermont Eclectic Company.

The people of the Vermont Eclectic Company believe that Vermont is a special place. Vermonters are happier and kinder people. They have a respect and love for nature and our environment. It’s a great place to raise a kid or just act like one. It’s both modern and rooted in the past. It embraces traditional values but is ahead of the curve on social issues. In short, it’s an incredible state to visit and call home, and what better way to celebrate it than with a great t-shirt design.

Our artists’ custom designs are inspired by the people and places that make Vermont special and fun. Celebrating the soul of Vermont, one shirt at a time.

Step inside the front doors of 4 The Green, and you’ll be greeted with the smell of butter and sugar!

It all started when our good friends moved to Woodstock, and my family visited them from our home in Peabody, MA. Our friends planted the seed that a bakery could be the perfect addition to the village of Woodstock, and I couldn’t shake the idea. In Peabody, MA, there are bakeries on every corner, but in Woodstock, Splendid Bakes has the opportunity to be one of the only ones, do something different, and bring something to the community!

A quote from Ligia Banks – Creator, Owner, and Baker

“I love everything I cook! If I didn’t love it, I wouldn’t serve it. But my favorite cupcake is the gingerbread with maple bourbon cream cheese frosting. Yum!”

Monica LOVES taking pictures! In fact she is lost without a camera in her hand. She feels that the only thing that is better than catching the light just right on an evening drive, is sharing that moment.

That’s what she does as she is always excited to share her photography with us through her canvas prints.

She has carefully researched canvas print companies to ensure she can offer us the highest quality product at the most reasonable price.
