At the end of the our girls weekend we stopped by here to get some souvenirs. While I was there I picked up a couple of things for me. The barrel selection of candy was great for the ride home. I recommend anyone who is walking by to stop in, you may pick up a little extra too.

This store has everything a typical souvenir shop would have and lots more. It was extremely busy and in my opinion overpriced. If you are looking for things in the area that are total tourist attractions this is not one of them. It is simply a store to purchase items then. Having said that each person in our party bought...

This was such a fun place to visit! It's located in the downtown area of Ashville which a very eclectic place to walk around, full of unique shops, coffee shops, art galleries, and one of a kind book stores.

This store is great for everyone. It reminds me of a general store combined with an old Woolrich. They have all kinds of toys and odd kitchen tools. They also have clothes, souvenirs, candy etc. definitely worth a look.

Love the collection in this shop - it reminds me of the things our generations used to play with and enjoy. This shop has something eye-catching for everyone and loads of old-fashioned candy and toys that kids would love. The hiking collections are also great and the gifts and souvenirs are great to carry back home. Stop by, relax and... More

We have been to the store about 3 times. We love it. The prices are great. Defiantly bring your kids since there are many things for kids. Their candy collection is one of the best I have ever seen. Great prices, you can get a lot of candy for cheap. There are 2 floors and many awesome toys and souvenirs!

It was ok. I was expecting more old time stuff but a lot of it was modern stuff. Sure had some candy and pop but other than that no reason to go out of way.

What a cool place. Something for everyone! My husband loaded up on old fashioned candy and even went back a second day for more. They have clothing, shoes, food products, small toys and games, hats, jewelry, housewares items, etc.... We even stopped shopping long enough to play a game of checkers.
