Best of New England, NH 2011: Country Store
Zeb's General Store
2675 Main St.
North Conway Village, New Hampshire 03860
In this sprawling shop devoted to New England specialty products, the shelves are filled to groaning with more than 5,000 items, from knickknacks and candles to soaps and condiments, including Bee Tree Farm honey and Stonewall Kitchen jams. Thankfully, the staffers turn what could be chaos into what they call "organized clutter." It's not a standard country store — there's no fertilizer or tools to be found — but it's a shopper's (and grazer's) paradise.
