Always able to find unique gifts, from kitchen goodies and tea, to holiday stocking stuffers, to greeting cards and stationery to Brighton jewelry. They're chocolates and candy selection is always varied as well, and plan to enjoy tea / lunch while you are there!

Contrary to the name, this is not a little store. It's an old house-turned shop filled with fun products. Each room has its own theme, with everything from clothing to snacks to house decorations. Good for both window shopping and actually making purchases.

This store is first place I go to when I visit Geneva. I enjoy the tea room and sweets room when I visit. There are many, different items here for everyone you can think of. I can spend hours in this store alone.

This icon of Geneva has been a special location for decades. It is crowded, especially on weekends, but you still should brave the crowds and go. There is a lovely luncheon served daily ( reservations recommended). And each room has a different category of goods...More
