A fun place to shop

Every time I come to town I have to stop here. They have a great collection of the odd and unusual. Also a great place to pick up some local souvenirs.

A great place to pick up jewelry! I stop by often for gifts. Souvenirs are their specialty. I bought a magnetic bracelet/necklace in red last time I was there. You will want to stay for a while on the first visit because there is so much to see.

While exploring the town of Dahlonega, we stopped into this store on the town square. Complete with the old glass counter at the front of the store, we enjoyed wandering through looking at local jams, jellies, honey, relishes, and other specialty, canned foods. There were old fashion toys, (i.e.: marbles, & rubber band guns), along with tee shirts, soaps, candles... More

If you are into homemade preserves, jelly, honey, pickled, etc... then there is a good selection here with a number of unique/unusual choices. As with every place in Dahlonega, there is a selection of gems, but I would recommend going to the gold mines where there is a much bigger selection if that is your thing. Overall, it is a... More

Plan to spend an afternoon roaming the aisles of hundreds of toys and unique gifts. Many of the toys replicated the ones my parents most likely had as children. It's located on the square in town lit up with tinker town lights embracing a photo op with Mr. And Mrs. Claus. A collection of walking sticks and local jams were... More

Out of all the stores we visited, this was my favorite. Everything from unique gifts to things to take you back in time.

A great place to stop if you have kids. They have a lot of STUFF tourist kids would like...marbles, rocks, knives, hats, T-shirts, candy...almost a museum of touristy stuff. Made for a cool stop and look around, but didn't buy anything.

I love going to this store, it has so many gifts and selections of jelly and preserves. You can buy marbles, sling shots, knives and all kinds of goodies you would find in the old General Stores of old. The player piano rocks and you can also sit in rockers and eat peanuts.
