A Bit of History
Pickwell’s Barn opened its doors in Wilmington, VT in 1994. The building itself was erected in 1836 as the backyard barn of original owners Fred and Nellie Pickwell.
Andrea Berg and former business partner Katy Little opened Pickwell’s Barn in 1994 as a home accents store. Like much of Wilmington, VT and the Mount Snow Valley, the store was devastated in 2011 by Hurricane Irene. With the store under water, all of the inventory was lost and much of Pickwell’s Barn was damaged.
The local community quickly stepped in, volunteering countless hours to help Andrea as she worked to open the store. And while reopening was no easy task, Andrea felt it was important to provide a place where locals, second homeowners and visitors alike could find comfortable, fashionable clothing. Unwilling to give up on her hometown of Wilmington, Andrea says, “I felt the town needed businesses up and operating quickly or we would lose the town.”
How does she feel about her decision today? “Thrilled!! People coming to the area love to have the store here and I love what I do.”
