Franklin's is always a must visit when in Mystic. I'm sorry I don't have better pictures from my most recent visit, but I was too focused on looking around. The store has a huge selection of jams, jellies, cheeses, sauces, condiments and more as well as books, items for the home and souvenirs. We also make sure to pick up a pound of fudge when we visit. Over the past 20+ years we have been coming to Franklin's the fudge has remained consistently delicious, which is a huge accomplishment in my mind. Often times places will change the recipe or start using cheaper ingredients but Franklin's fudge is just as creamy and flavorful now as it was the first time I came here. Highly recommend a stop for people in town or near by and don't forget to bring some fudge home!
This is what an old fashioned general store should be! From food, soaps, books, toys, decorations and more, you can find it all here. I loved their wide assortment of goods, which made for a fun and interesting walk through the shop. I found some great Christmas gifts here, and can't wait to come back in the future to pick up some more unique treasures.
My daughter and i drove east via Rt 2 E from West Hartford to Mystic to catch a glimpse of the fading foliage in late fall of 2022. My daughter wanted to see the old Mystic that she visited a number of times before with her class, from Webster Hill elementary to middle school to Saint Joseph College. I was there once, a long forgotten time ago. So it was as good as my first visit. Old Mystic contained so many quaint stores that carried so many products with so many themes that harked to different time periods. We spent most of our time at Franklin's General Store because we could finally find Connecticut produced items there that we could send to the Japanese family that adopted my daughter for the three years she spent teaching in Japan. We found everything Connecticut that we needed to send to our friends in Japan who couldn't be impressed with anything less that's made anywhere else. My daughter says we should move to Mystic. My mistake i say! I introduced her to the habit!
The best shop in Mystic! Has everything you need at reasonable prices. The people that work there make it a joy to visit! Must go here when near Mystic
I love Franklin's General Store. They have a variety of products included but not limited to books, toys, candles, condiments, and preserves. Offer samples of their delicious fudge. Something for everyone here.
