We came by the store since we had heard so much about it. It's an old, wooden, squeaky, uneven floor building. I mean, its nice. The place really takes you back to an era most of us know little about. The place sells lots of candies, jams, crackers, dill pickles, homemade chocolate, pies, etc.
I was disappointed with the big hype about the "homemade" ice cream....that it was a must. We went to get some only to see that it was Blue Bell Ice Cream. What the heck!? Oh well, we ate some anyway. It was hot outside!
It's a must stop if you are in the area. Pick up a tshirt or cap or ice cream. Or just take a picture inside or outside on the bench.
