Better than a thousand words...
This is seven thousand words!
Bachmann's Store, 2015
We've painted the store the original fire-engine red that Paul and Winnie Bachmann used back in the day.
Our old-fashioned candy counter
The candy is fresh, but the counter is the same as it's always been. You can still buy candy for TWO CENTS! Any candy you remember from your childhood is probably here. We have Brach's chocolate-covered peanuts and Brach's stars--two all-time favorites!
Cash Register--We still use it!
Paul Bachmann bought this USED in the 1940's. It's a National Register.
"If we don't have it..."
I spy Central Lake shirts, yarn, notions, fabric, jewelry, Amia stained glass...
The perfect toy for every budget! We carry Adora dolls, Barbies, Toysmith, Kidoozie, Calico Critters, Tonka, Smart Lab, Warmies, Schylling, Aquabeads...just to name a few.
Shut the front door!
We're proud of our Michigan air-conditioning--we open the front door and the back door on hot days. Most days we stay cool.
Go ahead and press your nose to the windows. You never know what you might see. I spy bird feeders, wind socks, silk flowers...
