FROM FIRST GRADERS TO FIRST LADIES – WE HAVE SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE!
As a beloved piece of Centerville and Cape Cod, generations of families are still visiting the 1856 Country Store for the old time delights, but we are so much more than a penny candy store! We have had many visitors over the years from First Ladies to First Graders! We are open year-round and offer a little something for everyone. Have a seat on one of the porch benches out front … Republicans or Democrats, whichever is your preference. Our Best Sellers: True Bayberry Candles; Sailor’s Rope Bracelet; Jams, Jellies & Relishes; Cape Shore Soaps & Home Fragrances; Old Fashioned Toys!
Nice words from customers
The best candy, birthday gifts, and beautiful items for your home. They gift wrap so it’s the perfect place to shop for a gift. We go all the time just to grab candy as well, though. It’s a whole family/fun/making memories/good feelings/nostalgia feeling experience. We ❤️ 1856 Country Store
One of my favorite Cape Cod stops for a treasure in gifts, souvenirs and hard candy. Great place for the whole family for fun items and great memories. Every shelf is filled with gems and hard-to-find gifts. When you walk in through the doors you step back in time when things were high in value and memorable.
Just walking through the doors brings a smile to your face. I’ve been coming here for over 40 years. The country store has everything! Bring home some memories of Cape Cod. Maybe it’s a towel with Centerville written on it. Maybe it’s a pair of reading glasses you found you liked. Maybe you want to get yourself some “penny candy”.
