If you are looking for a special or unusual item, this is the place to go. I always end up buying something that I never knew I needed, but once I saw it, I had to have it. The staff is very helpful and you can spend hours just wandering from room to room.

This is one of my favorite places to shop! I go at least once a month to get those awesome unusual gifts for people 😀 they never end up with duplicates! Just stop in once and I know you will be back....oh and don't forget their cute little restaurant. ...save room for that!

Thank goodness The Little Traveler is in my hometown of Geneva!!! I was hosting a baby shower for a boy and they had everything that I needed!! I looked all over for baby blue candles...they had them. They had baby blue placemats and napkins, dish towels, party favors, and rubber duckies to help with the theme. I found Mother's wine...

My wife, daughter and their friends absolutely love this place. I find it interesting. It has a multitude of items and multitude doesn't come close to describing the numbers. Well arranged but you have to come back many times to find all the unique items they have. Knowledgeable staff more than willing to help. Good prices. They provided items for... More

The stores go on forever and include every type of kitchen, personal, food, child, and other gift items you can imagine. Four of us enjoyed three hours shopping in the multitude of stores and brought home delightful items. The staff was abundant and very helpful. Upon checking out they bagged our items with color coded ribbons so when we got... More

Plan on spending several hours here, tea and little sandwiches with the crusts cut off harken back to a more gentile era when ladies wore white gloves and hats to luncheons. I take my two granddaughters here every year for a back to school treat and at Christmas time. They love it. I also love shopping here with friends and... More

I loved this place. What a great shopping experience like several shops under one roof I purchased a scarf for myself and a couple of Valentines presents. I wasn't planning on lunch there but wondered over to their cafe and selected their finger sandwich plate. I will go back.
