Flat Iron Exchange

The Flat Iron Exchange is a coffeehouse in downtown Bellows Falls. Located at 51 the Square, it is a creative hub for the community. Open 7 days a week, Flat Iron serves coffee, espresso drinks, hot chocolate and teas. Baked goods are offered daily: cookies, brownies, coffee cakes, savory breads, and special treats like homemade donuts and cinnamon rolls!

The coffeehouse is casual with an eclectic feeling; comfort and community resonates within the walls. Local emerging and established artists are showcased and add to the atmosphere. Local musical talent performs on Flat Iron’s open stage. As a place to gather, the community finds conversations and events at Flat Iron: open mic, poetry slams, comedy, art opening and game nights. As an ecofriendly environment, sustainable, natural and organic products are served, including Jubilee Farm CBD products and homemade pet treats.

In support of the community, products such as Suspended Coffee (pay ahead for someone less fortunate) and Disloyalty Cards (customer appreciation cards that will benefit multiple establishments) will be offered, along with tips for non-profits and specials integrated with local events. Flat Iron Exchange reflects the community, giving visitors a taste of our area.

Sherwin Art Glass

On August 28, 2005, Sherwin Art Glass was officially recognized by the State of Vermont as a business, complete with a scenic location overlooking the Connecticut River in Bellows Falls, Vermont.

Chris Sherwin: Glass has been an integral part of my life for more than 27 years, and I’ve been a Vermont glassblower for 15 years. My studio runs with environmental concerns in mind; my furnace and all equipment (except my torch) runs off the hydro-power generated by the dam here in Bellows Falls.  It feels good to be “green glassblowing” in the Green Mountain State, working in a medium that generally uses a lot of fossil fuels!  Reduce – Reuse – Recycle!

When not blowing glass, I enjoy many outdoor sports and activities (especially disc golf, kayaking/fishing, hiking & tennis), playing guitar, Brewing Beer–7Balls Brewing–now onsite at the 33 Bridge Street Studio/Gallery (!) , and spending quality time with my family and friends…. It’s a Good Life! :^)  Peace, Chris
