What’s the catch?

With all of the giveaways you may be wondering what the catch is. Our goal is to educate you with the hopes that you will get inspiration and shop local this holiday season. That’s it. There are no gimmicks, catches, or hidden agendas.

About the ShopVT Team

ShopVT is brought to you as a collaboration between BurlingtonVT Moms Blog and Try Vermont First.

BurlingtonVT Moms Blog is a parenting website owned and operated by Josilyn Adams, Tara Robertson, and Tasha Lehman. Part of a larger network of sister sites through the City Moms Blog Network, they are a website dedicated to all things mom and all things local.  BurlingtonVT Moms Blog is passionate about engaging with readers offline though exciting local events that connect moms to each other and great local businesses.

Try Vermont First was created by Honi Bean Barrett.  She has made it her mission to sample, taste, and try as many Vermont made products as she can.  She started her blog to give voice to these vendors and their products by giving them personal reviews and hosting their giveaways in the hopes that these products will end up in her reader’s homes.

Both groups have come together to create ShopVT, a comprehensive online resource in the form of a shopping guide that allows people to gather creative local ideas for holiday gifts.
