More About Stacy's Corners Store
Opened in June 2010, and exuding a feeling of history mixed with comfortable modernity, Stacy's Corners Store sells both the old and the new. For instance, you can find vintage wooden furniture from the 1800's, but also contemporary jewelry. Run by the Glen Ellyn Historical Society, which benefits from the store's sales, the store incorporates elements of village history with a showcase of wedding gowns dating back to 1869, and key dates on plaques mounted on the store walls. Stacy's Corners also sells hand-crafted and Amish-made food items like pineapple salsa, and jam, which are some of its most popular products, according to the store manager Jennifer Porter. A cozy section of the amply-sized store features a comfortable seating area where local groups and clubs can meet.
