Found: The Sweetest Syrup Pourer in Vermont


Art Director Stefanie Sosiak shares her souvenir from the Green Mountain State.

Collectively, the Air Canada enRoute team has amassed a trove of treasures from our travels – some iconic (tiles from Lisbon), others delicious (dulce de leche from Buenos Aires) and all reflective of the places we've been. Over the coming weeks, we’ll share them here – please share yours, too!

“My friends were the ones who told me about Farmhouse Pottery: I was going to Vermont, and they asked me to fetch a bowl for their adorable French bulldog. As soon as I stepped inside the charming studio–shop, located in a – you guessed it – white farmhouse in the rolling countryside near Woodstock, I understood why they made the request. The airy, sunlight–drenched interior is stocked with minimalist stoneware pieces, like coffee mugs and serving platters, all of which are made from locally quarried clay and thrown on the premises, so no two are exactly alike. Dog–bowl mission complete, I picked out a double–duty souvenir for myself (and my breakfast table): a mini–pitcher paired with a carry–on–friendly bottle of Vermont maple syrup (US$36, Farmhouse Pottery).”
