we visit every time we are in town. Love this store. Lester was our host this trip. He was great! Got to see the quiet milk shake maker! Don't miss this.
Also part of the Ghost Tour, this place has and interesting history. The collection of old bottles is really beautiful and the recipe of the "medicine" that was in them is fascinating.
