Nice but pricey

This store has lots to see. If you need a quick gift or some fabric, it is a great place to go. However, it is a bit pricey, so be prepared

I have been in this establishment several times. Everything is highend and expensive. Nothing resembling a true general store. That being said they do have so cool stuff.

this store is more souvenir like, more ladys who lunch like, not very general store like. don't get me wrong, they have nice things, pricy things, and interesting things, but not what I expected of a general store.

This store seems to go on forever, with a little bit of everything. There is truly something for anyone, from quilting to pottery to fun little knick-knacks. The prices were reasonable, and the staff was very friendly. Give yourself a little extra time to just meander so you don't miss some treasure that is just around the corner.

This general store does not have things as I imagined a la Little House on the Prairie, but it sure does have a lot. Quilting supplies, personalizable gifts, lovely pottery from Emerson Creek and elsewhere, candy, baby clothes and toys, jewelry, all sorts of stuff. Nice stop.

Excellent friendly staff. Great atmosphere. A variety of unique gifts. I did not buy much due to higher costs.
