Love a good ole southern hat? Why not get the boots as well when you gallop into Strickland’s Boots! With a counter in each corner, Strickland’s displays hundreds of different boot styles, cuts, & colors. Each pair of boots has a unique brown smoky color, shape, & size that bring them to life. They all have their own sweet personality. This shop has also been open for 50 years & they keep track of every boot sold, so trust that the owner knows a lot when it comes to BOOTS.

Hello Sunshine & arise to the occasion with your gifts. This establishment is beaming with precious crafts and delicious treats. But there’s nothing sweeter than the smile of Ms. Cook herself. Kim Cook is a 27 year cancer survivor, and she works everyday to make sure that 80% of profits are donated to those in need. This is one of my favorite visits. They are the definition of VARIETY. This is a great place for finding gifts for baby showers, weddings, birthdays, etc. Share your love by buying something nice for your friends or family.

Feeling hungry after a long shift and not wanting to cook? Well, Acres & Oak Kitchen is perfect for you. Acres & Oak is a family owned business that sells lots of delicious frozen meals, salads, breakfast, desserts, and more. The pot roast and chicken pot pie sounds delicious! I tried the lemon bars, and they’re pretty good. They have plenty of serving sizes, and the food comes with heating instructions. Talk about easy!
Boogie your way into Mama’s kitchen for some island cuisine. Who’s kitchen? Well, Mama P’s of course. Come over and taste her famous oxtails with a nice kick to them.

Minute Grill is the bee’s knees compared to all those fast food chains! I was immediately drawn in by the smell of delicious food and its diner style decorations.They have all the classics, such as hot dogs, burgers, and fries. I sooo wanted a hotdog.
