Nice to see a family business in the heart of an old town. I miss the old fashioned candy they used to sell, but still enjoy the ice cream and produce.

We enjoy small towns and going in quirky stores. We liked that they were decorated well for the autumn time of year too. It's a fun photo op too.

When they have fresh tomato bread it's really good but it must be seasonal because they don't have it all the time. They have a good selection of old fashioned candy and some of the new stuff too. They carry different sodas and chips as...More

This is a cute mercantile where you can grab an icy-cold Root Beer or a scoop of ice-cream ($2) or maybe some local honey or veggies. The gift shop items are for wealthy tourists who think the South is simply adorable. I just won't pay...More

This is a must stop after a visit to Gibbs Gardens. Visited a half dozen times. Stop in for ice cream or fudge or candy and enjoy the crazy merchandise. It's an enjoyable visit even without the ice cream
