Buzby's Chatsworth General Store

If you have never stopped by, do it now!  There is still time to meet Marilyn Schmidt.  Marilyn runs the store and is also a prolific writer and has self printed/bound and pubished many of her own works on the Pine Barrens.  She is currently working on a book on glass.  Marilyn was honored at last year's Lines on the Pines event.  She is a remarkable, charming and gracious woman.

Marilyn has finally come to the time in her life when she wants to make a permanent retirement.  She retired once before, then she bought the store and engaged in a whole new career supporting Pine Barrens artists and saving Pine Barrens history and lore (and recipes).

I love that store.  I have bought art, carved birds, tree ornaments, cranberry products such as fudge and chocolate covered cranberries, and many many other things - many of her books.

My sister told me the year I did my Christmas shopping there, it was her favorite gifts ever.  I bought all cranberry things fo rher - a cookbook, jams, chocolate covered cranberries, and at another place, some cranberry wine.

The store is charming and a great place to stop by after a long hike in the woods.

The store is up for sale, so if you are looking for a new career, Marilyn would also like to see someone open the cafe in ther again!
