When founder Ron Spivak first opened the Hawkins House in 1977, Jimmy Carter was President, a new car cost $4,785, a loaf of bread went for .36¢, gas was 65¢ a gallon, and Vermont had more cows than people.
As a second generation family business, Hawkins House is proud of it's 41 year history of providing exceptional quality jewelry, crafts and gifts. The secret of out success? "Customer service" says owner Elizabeth Ganger. "We love our customers and we do everything possible to reward our customers for their business."
