The Corner Shoppe is a gift shop serving our local area for over 20 years and representing dozens of local artists, carrying fair trade and recycled items as well as unique jewelry, home décor and antiques. The shop is housed in a restored 1850s Colonial Revival home at the intersections of Philadelphia Avenue, Swamp Pike, Route 73 (Big Road) and Gilbertsville Road, across from the Gilbertsville Post Office. A 1920s era Sunoco gas station is also part of the shop and contains gifts for men. The shop is located at 1500 E. Philadelphia Ave. in Gilbertsville.
