I love old general stores. I'm always amazed at the amount of merchandise on the shelves and it's always fun to just wander through them. This one was no different except that the aisles were narrow, the shelves stacked high, and it wasn't terribly well...More

This old variety store is jam-packed with stuff that you don't need, but you will probably find something that will catch your eye and will make the trip home with you. It is a fun place to spend some time browsing. It's a "must-do" when...More

Not a place to take small children, and if you are claustrophobic don't go into the oldest store. I had to leave, boxes and items are piled high as I kept hearing footsteps that sounded as if the noise was coming from the upstairs. I...More
