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 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
