I would not be doing justice if I didn't take time to do a review for Edith. She was absolutely entertaining, engaging, very fast in catching on characteristics of people in her group and tailoring a "sales pitch" to it. This requires some improv skills. Considering her young age, this is pretty commendable. She was dealing with 3 people who probably aren't easily impressed (a retired couple from Canada and my cynical self). It's an excellent "old" store with real knick knacks, furniture, fittings and equipment from bygone eras. Seeing the inventions and their evolved incarnations up close, and not behind some glass case in a museum, is quite amazing. The collection of stuff is quite intriguing, and Edith is so knowledgeable, knowing how every single displayed item works (and trying to get you to buy it... haha!)

Jeniviere was an awesome tour guide! Made us laugh and also gave us a ton of history along the way. The oldest store was definitely one of my favorite things to do in St. Augustine and I think our tour guide had a lot to do with that! So many things in the store I have never seen before including old vacuums, and devices to make cleaning “easier”. The bicycles with no seats were so strange and funny! This store was cool to see.
