    • Kitchen Kettle Village – Kitchen Kettle Village is located a short 15 minute walk from Carriage Corner eliminating the need to deal with traffic and parking at the Kitchen Kettle, allowing you to just get your shop on. On your way, make a stop into Village Cafe for a sandwich and milkshake, or stop at Sweet Shenanigans and grab a cupcake to get you the rest of the way there. If coffee is more your style, stop at The Corner Coffee Shop and get a beverage to get you through your shopping.
    • The Corner Coffee Shop is a rare bird in a town that closes at 6pm, by staying open until 9pm Monday through Saturday. On Friday and Saturday they feature local musical talent from 6:30 – 8:30. Depending on the weather, the music may be either inside or out. It’s a lovely way to wind down your day.
