This page provides you with a tour of our store, which was once the home to Riverboat pilot Captain John McCaffrey and his wife, Sarah. For more photos of our shop, see Our Photo Gallery.

As you enter Grasshoppers from the side porch, you enter the front room and check out area where my mom, Sam, is there to greet you along with an animal or two by her side. There is an old store cupboard which has a splash of great seasonal displays. Also, there is a grand fireplace where a fire blazes in the winter.

Around the corner to the right is the original dining room which offers a variety of gourmet food items. Some of our gourmets include Maggie and Mary's Simmering Soups, Rabbit Creeks Breads, Brownies and Muffins, The Gourmet Village, Cravings Dips and Mixes, The Pasta Shoppe Soups and Salads, Plentiful Pantry Soups and Cobblers, The Robert Rothschild Farm Products, Jellies, Salsas, Dips, Mustards, Sauces and more.

Beyond the food, we carry great hostess gifts and kitchen accessories.

The front room is for the gardener. We carry statuary, garden flags and mats, Bridgewater Candles, Chimes, Rain Gauges, Birdhouses, Birdfeeders, Birdbaths, Garden Stakes, Architectural items, Dried flowers and many more items that change frequently.

Off to the right, the Parlor is more Victorian with vintage hankies, mirrors, jewelry and accessories, old linens and of course, painted furniture.

Going up the stairs is now our sweet residence where we happily live with our 3 boys.

One of our biggest projects was the cellar. The Captain's Spirits was calling us. What was mostly dirt and limestone dust is now the Captain's Spirits Cellar. The cellar is now full of atmosphere not to be missed. We carry a variety of wines and spirits with great labels and great wine accessory items.


Our latest project was The Barn. Everyone said, "Tear it down!" Oh, I thought they said, "Tear into it!" - Well, we did, and it is now filled with so much rustic charm, great antiques, wonderful soy candles and so much more. My favorite treasure was finding the love letters from the 1920's in the barn rafters. "For the Love of Louis" is now a fantastic scrapbook.

Oh yeah - the loft is home to the PACALO club which is my 3 son's favorite hangout. Don't try to enter without a password!

Outside merchandise is all for sale. Spring and Summer offers great recycled, rusty treasurers not to be missed.
