About Us


Welcome! We are a small family run business operating in Old Town Warrenton, Virginia. Our roots stretch back to the mountains of North Carolina in the 1800s, Where the original VonCanon general store stood and Charles Banner VonCanon helped found the town of Banner Elk, NC and served as it’s Mayor for over 25 years. When the family moved to Virginia, we brought that love of community and a sense of tradition with us.

Our goal is to supply Warrenton and the surrounding communities with a taste of the past as well as great tasting old school candies and sodas, local teas, spices and so much more. We also stock gift items crafted by local artisans so you can feel good about supporting your community whilst you shop for yourself and others. Stop by and say hi. P.S. if there is a candy you remember from your childhood that you can’t find in store, let us know and we will do our best to find it for you!
