Located in the old marble bank on one of the four corners of downtown Bennington, Fiddlehead at Four Corners is a fine art and contemporary craft gallery that features handmade wares from studio artists across North America. We feature blown glass, pottery, jewelry, wood, metal, music, oil paintings, film photography and fiber. We have turned the old gold vault into the world's only "Graffiti Vault" with chalkboard walls and invite customers to "Chalk It Up!" -- an endeavor that has led to 3 self-published books by manager Joey Kulkin. Another vault -- the "Brew Vault" features vintage breweriana while the mezzanines are used for children's art classes. All of the remnants of the bank, opened in 1929, add to the decor, from the 7 brass chandeliers to the original marble counter and floors to the guard's bird nest to the teargas ducts. Fiddlehead began as a mom and pop endeavor in 1997 in a small studio owned by Joel and Nina Lentzner, who graduated from Bennington College in 1991. See you soon!

This place is so cool! From the music to the stuff they sell. You'd never really know that a store like this is in an old bank building...their signs don't really draw you inside...but I'm glad we checked it out.

We had so much fun at this place! It's like an art gallery, but with so much more stuff to do...there's an old bank vault where you can write on the walls with chalk, my daughter played their baby grand piano for at least 20 minutes...and they've got a vintage pinball machine (free) in another vault. Their prices were very... More

I was killing time waiting for a food order to finish and stopped in the place. The building alone was worth it! It was so unique and the old architecture was great! The art was beautiful and all the homemade pieces for sale were wonderful .

Fiddle head is my go-to store when I need to find a tasteful gift for picky people. There are all price ranges from $25 to much higher. The store provides a nice gift bag with tissue paper free-of-charge. The glass pieces and pottery are more contemporary than you will find at most Vermont galleries, but you can still find the...

Some very nice artesian items, but not all from Vermont. If you want a souvenir from a Vermont artist make sure you ask first before buying.

Artisan art nicely curated. Joey is one of the most likable shop owners ever. Good selection of quirky or just plan interesting pottery, books, glassware. The old bank vault lines with slate features a basket of chalk and an invite to leave a message or drawing.
