It's this nice little store in the middle of no where. The postmistress makes this place come alive. We bought Lemmon curd and used New Zealand. Please stop and support this unique place.

Rainy day drive out to Bainham - coffee and cake and always interesting curios. Love the tea cosies and reminiscing on the other items from our 60's - 70's childhoods. Great destination or stop on the way to further up the valley.
