Penny Candy and more...
Sep 2020
As the 1856 Country Store name implies, this is a mid Nineteenth Century building in the heart of the well preserved Nineteenth Century village of Centerville. They have a terrific selection of 'penny' candy items, though you'd be hard pressed to find anything actually selling for one cent these days. Additionally, there is also a wide variety of Cape themed gifts. After a visit to Craigville Beach or the famous Four Seas Ice Cream shop, this is also a required stop, especially for the kids. Covid has been a challenge for all, but now that the Summer crowds have dispersed, it is easier to spend a little time in the store and take in their great selection of souvenirs. If Centerville has captured your interest as a great central Cape spot to stay, you're right!, and the Capt. David Kelley House is two doors down from the store. It is a wonderful spot in this enchanting throwback to a simpler time.

Kids loved the candy, I loved the shop!

Really cute country store near our B&B The David Kelley House. Kids loved picking out candy and getting their orders at the window. The shop is filled with cute souvenirs, collectibles, jewelry, toys...too much to type. Go there!

Uptight clerks and overpriced
Aug 2020 • Family
The idea of this store is very cute, but we won’t be returning. Due to COVID they only allow 7 people in the store at one time, we completely respect this it is important to be compliant. However, no one is watching the door to let you know it’s okay to come in, we walked in when we saw the correct number of people leave and one of the clerks yelled at us not to come in, even though we waited for the appropriate number. The store is small and cramped and very overpriced. There are so many other stores like this, go elsewhere.

Adorable gift shop & candy store, a favorite with our family for 20 years!
Jan 2020
This is a unique little shop, whoever does the buying has an excellent eye, the selection is always changing and everything is chosen with love and care. Great for seasonal or birthday gifts, or treating yourself! The candy section is always popular with visiting families, who insist on going back every time they visit! Don't forget to take your picture on the Rep/Dem benches outside! I came here on my very first visit to the Cape 25 years ago, and now that i'm a year-round resident, I'm lucky enough to drop in whenever I please!

Cute little Country Store with Very Nice Staff
Feb 2020
I browsed around this quaint little shop and found the most adorable hand puppet for my grandson. I am a kid at heart so I was making little voices to match the puppet and couldn't stop giggling. When I checked out the clerk laughed and said I could see you had fun. I did!
