Plan a Trip To Sinton,Texas

We encourage you to take a day trip to Sinton and visit our exquisite gift shop. We carry all of the Aunt Aggie De's candy line year round (this is the only place you can purchase our chocolate items March thru October) plus much, much more. We have a huge selection of gourmet treats as well as unique and fine gifts. Our sales staff will gladly recommend a great lunch spot as well as other local shops deserving a look.

We are normally open Weekdays 9-5 and Saturdays from 10-4. We don't move at the same rushed pace as the rest of the world. I always find time for a cup of coffee and a sampling of our goodies!
