The Interior Design Center and some history…
Stowe Interior Design Center located in the heart of the village.
In 1978 Susan Bayer Fishman opened Shimmering Glass in Waterbury, Vermont. The shop began as a tiny stained glass studio in Susan’s home. Working alone, Susan designed and fabricated stained glass windows and lamps and took care of her children.
The shop gradually expanded into her living room with blown glass, Tiffany-style lamps, jewelry and kaleidoscopes.
In 1995, Stephen joined Susan and they purchased the Stowe Craft Gallery (established in 1967). The Stowe store is in Stowe village, home of Stowe Mountain Resort ski area, Trapp Family Lodge and many fine dining, shopping, art and recreational activities.
In 1997 our Interior Design Center took shape. Stowe Craft always has always featured unique displays. Over the years, more and more customers were asking Susan to help them select, coordinate and place art and craft in their homes. In 1997, an interesting building became available and Stowe Craft Interior Design Center was opened. It is located at the end of the Stowe Craft parking area, on Rt 100, next to the Mobil gas station. To keep everything (somewhat) managable, the Shimmering Glass store on Route 100 was closed and moved to Stowe.
Later that year, the galleries achieved national recognition being nominated as a top 100 gallery of American Craft.
