Store
“An old tobacco warehouse converted to an antique/vintage/awesome finds “mall” with lots of local vendors! Get everything from homemade jam to a restored 18th century sofa. Locals love this place, and people come from hundreds of miles to shop at this massive and unique antique mall. Ask Larry (the owner) and his staff for tips, and don’t forget to check out the Sarah Grace space! ”

Restaurant
“A southern diner with biscuits, gravy, and a daily special we call “a meat and three”. Only open for breakfast and lunch and well worth the trip. Extremely casual dining with great home cooked food. ”
