I love going to the General Store because it changes so often! It is always fun to see what new things they have out! A friend who had not been there before went with me this time. You have to plan to spend some time there as there is so much to look at! Don't forget to go upstairs also!

Beware if you have sensitivity to scents, as this store always has a warm inviting seasonal scent. This place is packed with so many local and imported hand made trinkets and toys. This is a must stop for us around the holidays.

This store is full of unique items that you won't find anywhere else! I especially love browsing the handmade items from local artists. Be sure to check out the clothing boutique upstairs - so many cute clothes at affordable prices! Dinner in the new Cafe and Bistro is also excellent. During lunchtime, it is deli style - where you order... More

This store stocks things you can't always find anyplace else. Some things are local and handmade. They used to have more handmade things than they do now, though. They recently added a Pandora shop. This also is a fun place just to hang out in for an afternoon. Great place to find gifts.

Get in line, quickly decide what to order through the glass cases and then HOPE you will have a place to sit. Both of us had a mixture of salads--agreed they were acceptable but not exceptional. We were lucky to grab a table at 11:20 am because by the time we were done people were walking around with trays of... More

This store sells things you don't usually find in other stores. Their merchandizes are cute and interesting, but you usually do not need them. Maybe, they are more suitable for being as gifts to others.
