  • Take the time to investigate this favorite shopping destination in downtown Geneva. Much to see in all types of different shops within this building. A landmark you will enjoy.  more »
  • My daughter, who is 26 yrs old, and I stopped in here because we were unsure what type of place it was. We were downtown Geneva walking and shopping. We were so happy we stopped in this place. We were amazed by how big it was and all the multiple rooms and items they had to purchase. If you can not find something here then you are not a real shopper. They have everything from Christmas decorations to wine! We were in here for a long time just loving it! We ended up going into on area that had samples of different condiments and other items to try. They were delicious! I ended up buying some Farmhouse red relish and a bottle of pineapple wine. I'm having a Luau at the end of July and will have these at that time. I think if u are in Geneva and you enjoy shopping this is a HAVE stop.
  • This place is definitely worth a visit. You will find something new everytime you go. I don't think I have been to every room in here yet, you have to spend a lot of time here to do it all in one stop. It does get busy and it is an older home, so pack light so you can squeeze through the crowds. Love how the older home was converted into this quaint, but large shop.
  • The brochure I picked up somewhere there said there are 36 rooms and although I didn't count, I believe it. When you first walk in the door, you're on the path no matter which way you turn, almost like a maze. You just go from one room to another and they just keep flowing making you wonder (and hoping not) if it will ever end. I picked up a map somewhere also that gives you a general idea of the kinds of things for sale and a general floor plan of the place. It would be easy to miss a room because each room has at least 2 entrances if not 3. There is a salesperson and cashier in virtually every room, but we waited til we got to the front to check out and she wasn't able to ring up one thing so we had to go back to that room, so you might want to pay as you go. We were in there so long that we missed lunch and to our pleasant surprise there is a cafe in the middle of the place to get a bite to eat. Make sure you find the brochure - paper flyer about the place, it has an interesting history. To sum up this is like having 36 stores under one roof, like a mini mall, so you might want to give yourself enough time to go through it all and hit some of the other shops on 3rd Street also.
  • I personally am not and never will be part of the demographic that would shop here. That being said the 36 differrent rooms of home goods, womens clothing, jewelry, art, crafts, kids toys, wine, spices, candy, stationary, and all sorts of other odds and ends is impressive. If you are looking for a gift idea, and have no clue what to get, this is your place to go.
  • My wife and mother-in-law always come here at Christmas and spend hours going through the place. Normally I would kick and scream about going with them but I know they have lots of delicious food samples! Their candy shop is amazing - all of my favorite brands from growing up in the 70's are there (as well as from all the other decades!). MEN - THIS IS THE PLACE TO GO!
