This general store opened in 1872 and has been in continuous operation ever since. The store pays homage to its humble roots by offering old-time candy and specialty goods along with the “general store” offerings shoppers need today. Pick up some delicious farmer cheese, fruit butter, or relish for a snack to eat back in the cabins in the Georgia mountains.

Mark of the Potter
This shop in Clarkesville, GA features handmade crafts in metal, ceramics, glass, and pottery and has been open since 1969. The site was originally a working mill that opened in the 1930s. The shop opened after the Soque River flooded and ruined the inner workings of the mill. Today, people travel from all over to buy the crafts made and sold here. You can also feed the mountain trout right from the store’s porch.
