A great store with a lot of cute country decorations and stonewall kitchen jellies,jams, dips etc. Overall really nice, upstairs is very cool- some antiques. Can be a bit pricey tho..

“Charming country store -- wonderful items, friendly staff -- A MUST SEE !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2012

This is a wonderful place to visit and shop. Step back in time to experience an old time country store, complete with penny candy. They carry beautiful decorative items, candles, and yummy food items -- love the sauces and dips ! I get swept away by the magic from the moment I walk through the doors. The staff is always friendly and helpful. I've bought artwork and pretty candly rings for my dining room light. I would recommend this place to everyone !

“Charming and Unique Country Store”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2012

the Brown and Hopkins Country Store is well worth a trip from wherever you are. The decor is so beautifully arranged, the stock is unique and interesting and the staff is very helpful and pleasant.
Penny candy, candles, flowers, gourmet food stuff, and fabric are interspersed with some antiques to provide something for everyone.
Don't miss it!
