I love visiting local stores of the towns i am in and this place is exactly that. They have a lot of stuff made in or near Dahlonega that is different and out of the ordinary. Lots of jams and "culinary" type products. The staff was not super attentive but they got the job done!

The Dahlonega General Store is like stepping back in time when there were general stores. You find many unique items local to Dahlonega, as well as, things you remember as a child! It is a Dahlonega 'must-see' and don't forget to get a cup of 5 cent coffee and a handful of peanuts!

What a cool and fun place to browse thru. Candy barrels, novelty items, stones, candles, incense, various novel canned items and jellies. Very neat time spent in this store. I even purchased some old school Watkins Liniment and Bacon Flavored chewing gum as a gift for a bacon loving friend, It is in the town center area and worth spending... More

Reminded me of a Mast General Store, but far more expensive! Although I did fine a Jim Shore Christmas item at half price...that was a steal. I'd pass this by.

Every time I come to town I have to stop here. They have a great collection of the odd and unusual. Also a great place to pick up some local souvenirs.

A great place to pick up jewelry! I stop by often for gifts. Souvenirs are their specialty. I bought a magnetic bracelet/necklace in red last time I was there. You will want to stay for a while on the first visit because there is so much to see.

While exploring the town of Dahlonega, we stopped into this store on the town square. Complete with the old glass counter at the front of the store, we enjoyed wandering through looking at local jams, jellies, honey, relishes, and other specialty, canned foods. There were old fashion toys, (i.e.: marbles, & rubber band guns), along with tee shirts, soaps, candles... More

If you are into homemade preserves, jelly, honey, pickled, etc... then there is a good selection here with a number of unique/unusual choices. As with every place in Dahlonega, there is a selection of gems, but I would recommend going to the gold mines where there is a much bigger selection if that is your thing. Overall, it is a... More
