    Saturday, April 5th While walking around the Village of Helen, we went down one of the many alley ways and found this wonderful shop hidden in the back.
    This shop was full of rocks and wood creations like outside decorations for your garden and windchimes. There was this guy there playing music on a wooden flute and another guy was making some type of art project to sell in the shop out of WILDE WOOD (items from Nature) to make the item...
    I liked this shop but I think mainly I liked the flute music!!!!

    Saturday April 5, in Fau Bavarian Village of Helen, Ga after eating I went to explore some of the shops off of Helen Square while Tony enjoyed sitting in the sun at the Bier Garden outside the front door of the shop drinking and listening to Country music....

    The shop is full of gorgeous Delft china pieces..I love these pieces that are white and delft blue...I would love to have shopped here but WAY WAY expensive...
    Nice though, very small and crowded...Not good for little ones..too many breakables..

    Hansel and Gretel Candy Shoppe: Hansel and Gretel Candy Shoppe

    Saturday, April 5, Tony and I was walking around enjoying the Faux Bavarian Village of Helen Ga...very touristy and very expensive..
    We stopped at Hansel and Gretel's Candy Shoppe on Main street. It is very colorful and crowded...elbow to elbow room only with people shopping in there..The candy is very expensive and so is the candy apples and candied popcorn..
    But I must say I enjoyed the samples they offered..

    I would shop here if I wasn't such a budget minded person!!!!

    Old Sautee Store: 130+ Years Old and Still Going!

    by TexasDave Updated Mar 23, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    2 more images

    There has been a trading post/store/post office here since 1872 and it has had only 4 different owners! The front part of the store is more of a museum, nothing has been changed, and you can see old timey medicines and trinkets still on the shelves. An addition was put on to the back and all kinds of souvenirs and crafts are sold.

    Betty's: Country Store Deluxe

    by dustmon Written Sep 19, 2011
    General Store

    Betty's started out (1973) as a small building on the corner, where we used to stop on the way to camping at Blue Hole near Brasstown Bald, for supplies such as eggs and bacon for the next days breakfast, and also for her famous carrot cake. (MMMMM) Now it's a huge grocery store with a deli in the back and gifts in the front area, and groceries in the middle. Got some readymade spaghetti and ceasar salads for dinner back at home.....Very recommended.

    What to buy: groceries, deli

    What to pay: good prices

    Pretty walk behind along the creek, and you can see the wheel house.

    Brookstown Fudge: Fudge anyone!

    by tpangelinan Updated Apr 4, 2011
    The master at his best!

    Now this is some good fudge, as soon as you walk in they give you samples which are wonderful. As you walk along the main street shops try turning into the small alleys you will find some neat shops to poke your head into, this being one of them. You can even watch them make the fudge while you order.

    Fred's Famous Peanuts: Visit the nuts

    by rexvaughan Written Jul 19, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Get your boiled peanuts here
    1 more image

    This is as much a local custom or cultural encounter as a shopping tip. Roadside produce stands are a dying phenomenon in the US but this one seems to have fairly permanent status. The owners live in the house next to the stand and, when possible, sell some of the things they grow themselves. Unfortunately the drought this year means they will have no apples to sell in the fall. They have a variety of nuts, candies, honey, jams, etc. It is located about a mile north of Helen on the road to Uncoi State Park and Anna Ruby Falls. Worth a stop to chat with the lady who owns it if nothing else. Also they have an entertaining collection of signs and sayings to lend a chuckle. My favorite is "Missed my husband today, but my aim is getting better."

    What to buy: If you are up for it, try a typical southern delicacy: boiled peanuts. Not my cup of tee, tht the natives love them.

    Hansel & Gretel's Candy Kitchen: Got a sweet tooth?

    Cooling the hot fudge

    Of course there has to be a shop here called Hansel and Gretel and this one is a delicious one, not to mention the wonderul aroma of chocolate which greets you at the door. My wife and I had to have some of the chocolate pecan fudge of course and our grandson loves pretzels covered with white chocolate. They were both delicious. Our timing was fortunate as we saw both being made while we were there. Nice to see things being made instead of just buying mass produced stuff. They make an amazing variety of candies and have a few available for sampling and of course you can get gift boxes of all sizes. I sampled some wonderful peanut brittle, bought our candy and ran. It could be addictive!

    What to pay: Small quantities of candy are ot expensive but you could spend a fortune if you are a sweet addict.
