Cute little place that offers things for any age group. All mostly colonial themed, prices are average, however not bad considering the area.They offer inexpensive scented soaps and lotions. They have cute potholders and ornaments to take home. Worth the visit.

One of the many attractive places in Merchants Square, this small shop is loaded with everything Williamsburg and more with an extensive selection of nice gifts and souvenirs. You certainly know you are on vacation when you are in here.

Another on the main street in Merchants Square there is something to suit all budgets for a gift or souvenir. Variety of offerings from games and houseware to the more frivolous holiday purchases.Good store to wander in and you never know what you might find.
