We feature gourmet specialties from New England, RI Honey (great for allergies), RI Maple Syrup, and the best fudge you ever tasted!Visit our main floor which features a self serve cafe (100% of the donations for coffee, tea or cocoa go to the local charity of the month), over 6 candle lines, an old fashioned candy counter and a ladies boutique!The second floor features several room settings....a patriotic room, a curtain and textile room, a bedroom, and a gathering room...so many folks tell us how they'd like to move in! We hope you'll visit soon...we can't wait to make you feel at home!

Step into Brown n Hopkins and step back in time. Enjoy the "penny" candy counter, browse the antiques, taste some food samples including Stonewall Kitchens products, buy a gift or a candle. No trip to Chepachet is complete without a stop here.

For all that's it's a very historic store, none of that history is on display inside the store. It's a very heavily stocked gift store with a wide variety of goods. You could easily find a gift for anyone here.More
