I have never seen a store with so much nostalgia. And the candy selection here you will never see anywhere else. Great clothing, mercantile and shoe selection you will never see anywhere in WNC.

This is a great old general store. Three floors of merchandise. Many items you don’t find anywhere else. I love the old creaky floors. Main floor has clothing, lower floor has kitchen, household goods, foods, and old time candy.
