I bought vanilla extract, they have many varieties along with honey, maple syrup and all the merchandise you would find in a country store. Their cash register is an antique and beautiful.

This looked like the kind of place I would like and it didn't disappoint. Stickers, jewelry, candy, gifts, toys, but of course the main draw are the spices and extracts. Heard people there raving about the chocolate chips and vanilla and bought a small bottle...More

If you like to bake you must go to this store and buy their homemade vanilla. Tastes phenominal and helps everything you bake to taste better. Then buy more of their spices and extracts like the almond extract. Buy the Worchestershire sauce.

Eclectic country store - a lot of stuff in a small space. Old time candy, bulk spices, and an 'adult' gag gift section reminiscent of a Spencers gift store at the mall. Kids toys & puzzles, tourist kitcsh.

I've been ordering their 1 pint bottle of Vanilla for about 7-8 years now. My wife is the cook at our River Edge Mansion Bed and Breakfast and she always uses Charles H. Baldwin & Sons vanilla. Great stuff.
