A.J. Stickle Variety Store in Rhinebeck

Posted By on Mon, Dec 9, 2013 at 9:00 AM


Last Sunday, the family and I went to the Christmas Tree lighting in Rhinebeck, and it dawned on me that while I have written about almost every restaurant and visited every boutique there, I have never written about A.J. Stickles Variety Store. This friendly neighborhood store reminds of the five and dime stores of my Long Island childhood. You'll find odd toys, a mini-Slinky, measuring cups, stuffed animals, dolls, rubber balls, puzzles, and Rhinebeck T-shirts. Most of the items for sale are reasonably priced. (You'll only get into splurge category if you buy your little one one of the over-sized stuffed animals). I was tempted to buy a bandana., but instead we just bought an animal puzzle. This is a great place to buy an inexpensive quirky gift.
