If you like to bake you must go to this store and buy their homemade vanilla. Tastes phenominal and helps everything you bake to taste better. Then buy more of their spices and extracts like the almond extract. Buy the Worchestershire sauce.

I've been ordering their 1 pint bottle of Vanilla for about 7-8 years now. My wife is the cook at our River Edge Mansion Bed and Breakfast and she always uses Charles H. Baldwin & Sons vanilla. Great stuff.

There are not many places like this left... The corny gifts, the pretty scarves, the goofy cards and penny candy (plus a 1-cent gumball machine) abound. The proprietor is wry and obviously enjoys his shop and his customers. In addition to the signature vanilla, there...More
