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...More

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....More
