The Heritage House Gift Shop offers a wonderful selection of books and merchandise that reflect the nature of the house and the time in which it was constructed – the 1890s. The Gift Shop is open during normal house hours and during special events. Cash and checks accepted only. (no credit cards at this time, please)
Books for adultsVictorian Architecture, customs, and clothing. Steamships, automobiles, airplanes, and local history Old-time Cookbooks
For adults, citrus foods are available, since Mrs. Bettner ran this business from her house, along with stationery, soaps, china, and jewelry.
Heritage House memorabilia are also for sale such as Christmas ornaments, note cards, postcards, magnets, thimbles, pin cushions, mints, and tiles.
Children’s CornerMerchandise chosen for the Gift Shop also features articles for children as well as for adults. Many examples of turn-of-the-century toys, including dominoes, sock monkeys, jacks, and marbles, fill the Children’s Corner, as well as coloring books and paper-doll books.
The books selected for children include those written during the time when the house was built. Those for adults emphasize Victorian architecture, customs, and clothing, as well as ancillary topics such as steamships, automobiles, airplanes, and local history. Most recently a collection of old-time cookbooks was added to the stock.
