We enjoyed taking a look around and purchased some HoneyCrisp Apple Butter! The classic candies, toys, puzzles, and clothing were fun to browse through. I'd recommend stopping in while in the area!

We visited here while waiting for Hurricane Irma to leave Florida. We were not impressed. Yes they have everything but so does a lot of other stores. We are probably the only ones who won't ever go back.

Cute store with old fashioned candy but I was expecting a true old fashioned general store...Found some really good bargains though and you can't beat the cokes sold in the bottles...
