Travelers shopping for crafts along the back roads can find some treasures, but most of all, the fun is in the adventure and the chance to talk with locals. The best part about traveling through rural New England was the charming “Cottage Industries” sprinkled along the roadsides. These homespun businesses are the essence of what
