Our Favorite Unique Small Owned Businesses in Lancaster & Chester County


We love the small businesses that are unique to our own area. Whether you need to find some herbs and supplements at King Herb Nook or you’d like to find a unique find that Steeple to Peoples Thrift Store, you can find it within a few miles of Honey Brook. These are tried and true businesses that we frequent often ourselves.

King’s Herb Nook

Lancaster County is unique for the little shops along the road filled with locally grown and sourced food and home goods, and King’s Herb Nook is one of my favorites for herbs and supplements. It’s not a large store but we always appreciate buying the tea and herbs they sell. Rarely does a day go by that I don’t use something that I purchased at this special store.

Steeple to People Thrift Store

Our blog post on our 8 Must-See Thrift Stores continues to be one of our most read blogs. In it we mention the Steeple to People Thrift Store, and it remains a favorite of mine. It’s located in downtown Honey Brook, which I can walk to in just a couple of minutes. I’ve found multiple treasures from this store that I’ve kept in my own home. But the most popular finds are likely the dining rooms sets from both Louise Avenue and New Dorwart Street

Route 10 Roadside Stand

This Roadside Stand exudes an irresistible charm that beckons travelers to pause and indulge in its offerings. This quaint establishment is a beacon of simple pleasures and culinary delights. Here, visitors are greeted with the tantalizing aroma of freshly picked fruits and vegetables, their vibrant colors arranged in baskets like nature’s own masterpiece. Homemade jams, preserves, and artisanal cheeses tempt the taste buds, while the promise of warm, buttery cornbread lures hungry passersby. With friendly faces and genuine hospitality, the proprietors of the Roadside Stand invite patrons to savor the flavors of the countryside and embrace the unhurried pace of rural life, making each visit a cherished memory of wholesome simplicity.

Millers Route 10 Green House

Route 10 Green House offers a verdant paradise where one can explore, discover, and cultivate their love for plants. Whether seeking to adorn a living space with floral splendor or simply reveling in the beauty of nature’s creations, a visit to the greenhouse promises a rejuvenating experience that nourishes the soul and inspires a deeper connection to the natural world. Claude has often bought a plant for our house or flowers for our landscape from the green house.
