What our customers say

I'm not a big fan of country stuff or antiques, but I do like browsing through Bittersweet when I come home to Brockport for a visit. It's got that hometown feel to it which makes it genuine. Plus, its located in an old historic building (which I believe used to be a bank), so it's cool to go inside and look at the architecture and imagine what it used to be like a century ago.

They have a lot of antique-looking items for your home, unique jewelry, and clothing (including some Life is Good stuff). At Christmastime, they offer a variety of ornaments, etc. It's a pretty cool store overall and a good place to buy a gift. But for me, it's more about the feeling you get walking into such a historic place.

When my son was in college in Brockport, I always visited your shop. It brings back so many great memories. Besides seeing my son, Bittersweet was the hi light of our trip. I truly miss it.

We have always been a shopper at Bittersweet. I have brought my friends and mom to shop Bittersweet as well. They all marveled at the unique items and the fine quality as well.

This store is brimming with ceramics, primative art, windchimes, soaps, clothes and jewelery. The staff is freindly and helpful under the direction of the shop owner, Darlene Trento. If you are near Brockport, it is worth swinging over and stopping by.

Darlene has just opened a sister store, Fast Buck Fanny's for the younger, hipper crowd (cheaper and aimed for college dorm room decorating).
