About Us


Hello! Welcome to Hughes & Company. We are a family-run business that has been partnering with retail establishments since 1993. At the start we serviced only Vermont stores, but soon spread out to cover all of New England. Since we are owners of a retail establishment as well, we know in order to find new goods you need to see, touch, feel and sometimes smell what you may be purchasing. That’s why we come to you. We are “road warriors” and will always put your interests first!


Based in the beautiful Green Mountains of Vermont we are inspired every day by our surroundings. We are fortunate to cover the best territory in the USA. Back in 1994 when we made the move from Massachusetts to Vermont our oldest child was 10 years old.  In 2011 that child, our daughter Kate, joined the business. She services MA, CT, and Southern Vermont. With an eye for new trends,  Kate has helped us acquire new Vendors and grow our business in Southern New England.

See below to find your sales rep for your area. We look forward to working with you and bring the latest the industry has to offer! To contact us you may e-mail or call the main office. For more information please see our “Contact page.”

Our goal is to bring you, our customer the best in gifts, apparel, and novelties. We work tirelessly to find you the products that just sell, sell, sell! If you are looking for local artists that capture the New England experience they are here. We also feature “Made in the USA” and a few Imported lines to give you a broad range of choices for your particular enterprise.


Hughes & Company is also a proud supporter of Fair Trade clothing, gifts, and accessories. We carry fun jewelry,  wonderful clothing, accessories, and paper goods made in Nepal and other Fair Trade areas.  Benjamin International made a generous gift of an ambulance to the Nepalese people after the recent earthquake.  Even better, these items ship from New England to arrive quickly at your door!



Here’s what another wonderful customer said about us:

“We have been dealing with Hughes and Co. for 20 years or so and have always been able to count on them for fresh ideas to make our store a better shopping experience for our customers. We value and trust their advice and they have proven themselves year after year!”
