I was saddened to hear that ADIVASI will be closing it’s beautiful store on Flat Street. It hs always been a favorite place of mine to pick up an unusual gift or a beautiful tablecloth while supporting independent artisans. This is a huge loss for our town. I wish the family well.

Their official announcement:
Adivasi is one of Brattleboro’s treasures, and the Bhanti family are among the kindest, warmest people you will ever meet. I am saddened by this loss. Thanks for posting this.
What a loss indeed
I guess I had better purchase the beautiful curtains I have been daydreaming about. This business will be missed. I have made some of my favorite purchases there, and received some of my favorite gifts from there. I suppose I took it for granted that they were a permanent fixture in the town.
This is one shop closing that hit me right in the chest. The public relations of the store owners/employees was among the best in town. I have a shirt I bought there that I still get compliments on every time I wear it. I have napkins from Adivasi that are among my favorites, as well as many other home embellishments. But my favorite memory of Adivasi will always be going there to buy packages of incense at Christmas time every year, that I included in all the gift boxes I send to family and friends.
I love the store too and all the beautiful and exotic products they sell there. But what I’ll miss most of all is Elissa. She has to be one of the nicest people ever to grace downtown. Even though I only shop there a few times a year, she always seems to remember me and puts up with my browsing whether I can afford to buy anything that day or not!
What a drag, both for them and for us.
Another loss for Brattleboro - Adivasi Closing
I am very sad to hear they are closing, but I understand their reasons. I have purchased beautiful jewelry and textiles from them over the years and can’t say enough about the quality of those items or the incredible service and kindness of the Bhanti family.I wish them the best of luck.
