Overview
More
Located in the old marble bank on one of the four corners of downtown Bennington, Fiddlehead at Four Corners is a fine art and contemporary craft gallery that features handmade wares from studio artists across North America. We feature blown glass, pottery, jewelry, wood, metal, music, oil paintings, film photography and fiber. We have turned the old gold vault into the world's only "Graffiti Vault" with chalkboard walls and invite customers to "Chalk It Up!" -- an endeavor that has led to 3 self-published books by manager Joey Kulkin. Another vault -- the "Brew Vault" features vintage breweriana while the mezzanines are used for children's art classes. All of the remnants of the bank, opened in 1929, add to the decor, from the 7 brass chandeliers to the original marble counter and floors to the guard's bird nest to the teargas ducts. Fiddlehead began as a mom and pop endeavor in 1997 in a small studio owned by Joel and Nina Lentzner, who graduated from Bennington College in 1991. See you soon!

I was really looking forward to this store and from what I could see from the sidewalk, it looked like just exactly the kind of store I love to browse. But it was closed today even though the website said they opened at 9am. I...More

This place is so cool! From the music to the stuff they sell. You'd never really know that a store like this is in an old bank building...their signs don't really draw you inside...but I'm glad we checked it out.

Some very nice artesian items, but not all from Vermont. If you want a souvenir from a Vermont artist make sure you ask first before buying.
