I was not expecting to find such a cool place in Giddings! Very unique and diverse merchandise! I wanted to buy everything in the store! Even if you aren't looking to buy anything it's worth stopping in just to look. And, to top it off, they sell fudge!

Buy 4 pieces of fudge and get 6. Several flavors made in store 3 times per week according to owner. Shop is also accessories, antiques, and reproduction vintage clothing for antique car enthusiasts. Interesting to visit.

This store is a delightful place to hunt for that unexpected gift for your friend with a distinctive collection. The whole store is arranged by interest, like cats or dogs or cowboy boots or angels or porcelain boxes. Their other specialty is vintage clothing for dressing in a particular period. All of the store is fun eye candy, and most... More

My daughter and I bought new, as opposed to used, quality Victorian style clothing to wear to a themed wedding. Staff (Dana and Brandy) were very helpful and we had a lot of fun! Found exactly what we needed.

Thought this store would be an antique shop. It has some antiques, but it's just about the best shop you'll ever find to get lost in and browse for at least an hour or more and still not see everything!!!! Have fun.

What an interesting place to shop! Everything from funky to fun to beautiful and all items in between. Huge collection of clothing styled in years gone passed for vintage car enthusiasts. Wonderful fudge! Don't pass it up--it might be the most fun you've had in a long time and you'll find a treasure!
