Absolutely the best shopping experience!!! This is a Connecticut treasure that brings you back in time. The owners are locals who have created a treasure going on over 20 years at the base of the swing bridge across from the Goodspeed Opera house. My family has been frequenting this shop for over a decade and from the littlest ones to grandparents - everyone is a fan! The owners are friendly shopkeepers who focus on American made and local artisans. You will find everything here for home, hearth and table. Every gift need can be met and you will find the best candy counter ever! Every kid around here has grown up over their candy counter and the owners know them all by name. They have a great kids section with toys, books and clothing. There is an extensive home and seasonal décor selection, candles, lighting, jewelry, foods, pet treats, vintage furniture and on and on. This is one of those great places where you enter as a customer and leave as part of the family! I am a local Higganum resident who is lucky to have these owners and this shop as part of my community. I shop often as the owners are always bringing new merchandise in. When you want the most enjoyable shopping experience you must make this your destination!
Watch Out! the owner of this store said that i was a bad mother because my 4 year old, well behaved and respectful, daughter knocked off a fabric santa hat atop of a well wrapped chocolate on a stick. the hat was not glued on and easily placed on top. my daughter did nothing wrong in the store but play with some puppets and opened a few candy jar tops so that we may purchase some candy. she did not stick her fingers in there but pointed to the candy. the owner and the owners daughter followed us around like we were criminals. i felt horrible! i will never shop in a store where children are not welcome and feel liked we are being watched. i have taught both my children to be very respectful and contributing empathetic persons to society. i cannot believe that in this day and age any one could be so intolerant of harmless innocents. especially the owner who has a daughter herself. inexcusable and shameful. i will never shop here again!
