I like to just walk around in the place just to see what is different from last visit. I really like the knife shop and cast iron selection. It is fun to sit on the porch and have a Moon Pie and drink.

Has real products, not just kitschy souvenirs. Local honey and jams are for sale. A 3-piece bluegrass band played inside the store. Friendly service.

We visited in March. It was a great stop on our trip. I loved browsing around the store. The knife section is awesome. The creaky old hard woodfloors and stairs were a pleasure to walk on. The employees were very nice and helpful. I would...More

My family and I stopped here and it was neat walking around the store. They had throwback sodas and candy, old post cards and tools. Very cool store, I recommend stopping and browsing.
