    Virginia City Artisans and Growers Guild: All in One Place

    by cpiers47 Written Dec 9, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This log cabin holds a beautiful collection of the art pieces created by residents of Virginia City. It's tiny and filled with great and unique gifts. It's worth browsing through as it is consistently open and the woman who works there is very friendly.

    What to buy: I love the tin stars made from recycled tin as well as the "found items" crosses.

    Ruby Chang: Great Jewelry

    by cpiers47 Written Dec 8, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a tiny store named after a character in Virginia City's past. The store is well-organized and interesting with items ranging from things perfect for a little girl to amazing stone jewelry in a much higher price bracket.

    What to buy: I always walk out with a ring, but there are so many things to chose from. My friend chose between headbands, rings and necklace pendants.

    What to pay: The prices are very reasonable. This a great place to buy a gift for someone at home.

    The Ice Cream Shoppe: Wickedly Delicious Ice Cream

    The Old Ice Cream Maker

    The ice cream here is so delicious. There are no artificial colours or flavourings used - just sweet cream, sugar and fruits and extracts. mmmmmm......... This is probably the best ice cream I have ever tasted.

    What to buy: Among the flavours that tempted us: vanilla, chocolate, peach, cherry, huckleberry, strawberry.... there were more than a dozen choices.

    The ice cream maker is set up outside by the sidewalk so you can watch them making ice cream. The machine is powered by an old tractor!

    One of the jewellery stores
    1 more image

    This shop is owned by four local jewellers. Many of the pieces in the store have been fabricated by one of them, using locally mined silver and gold.

    They have pieces to suit every taste and budget, from rings to money clips to earrings and more. You will find precious and semi-precious gem stones in a variety of settings.

    What to buy: They had a number of Idaho opals when I was there, along with some really remarkable yogo sapphires. Those would be my favorites.

    What to pay: Anywhere from $50 to $10,000

    The Candy Shop: A Candy-Lover's Dream!

    by Camping_Girl Written Aug 4, 2007

    The Candy Shop

    The Virginia City Candy Shop is a sweet lover's dream come true. They have a wonderful assortment of all things sweet and sugary. The salt water taffy is wonderful! They have an old taffy machine set up in the store window, and you can watch the taffy being pulled from the street.

    What to buy: Make sure you buy a few pieces of salt water taffy. I'm not usually a taffy fan, but they have every flavour imaginable, and I thought it was great.

    What to pay: From a few cents or more, depending on what and how much you buy.
