The owner of this shop is very careful in her showcasing of local products from San Benito County. From wines, soaps, jewelry and everything in between Bene will have it, You will get a little history on your purchase if you ask. Lovely packaging will accompany you out the door. I love coming in here, always something new to discover.

Centrally located on the main street of Hollister, this establishment carries only products made or grown in San Benito County. If you are wanting to take home some special treats for the folks back home, this is a wonderful place to shop, and the good people of the county will truly appreciate your support.
