Has anyone been to the Mast General Store?

One of my friends recently returned from a trip to South Carolina where she visited with family. On the trip, they stopped at Mast General Store and she posted a picture of it on her blog. When I saw it, my first thought was "OMG, I've been there". Little did I know, there are actually several Mast General Stores located in NC, SC, and TN.

A couple of years ago, I went to visit my friends mom in Boone, NC. We went sightseeing and one of the places that she took us was the Mast General Store. When you step into the store, you feel like you've just stepped back into the 1950's. It's filled with hundreds of antiques along with a variety of items that you might find in a General Store. According to their website, the original focus for them was to carry "all of the items that a neighbor might need" from plows to cloth and "Cradles to Caskets". That's changed a little over the years, but one thing that has stayed the same is the old time candy and flavored sodas.

So, my question to you today is "How Many of you have been to the Mast General Store and what is your favorite item?"

I went to the one in Valle Crucis several years ago while visiting family. It has become quite the tourist destination. I didn't even know that they still made candy cigarettes.
