Located within the historic Hardesty Higgins House in the heart of downtown Harrisonburg, Virginia, the Rocktown Gift Shoppe is your destination for Virginia made gifts and souvenirs. From postcards and books to home goods and apparel, the shop’s thoughtfully curated collection of gifts offer a great opportunity to buy local souvenirs and made in Virginia items as well as the extremely popular Virginia is for Lovers products. 


Bring a taste of Virginia home with you with the store’s varieties of jams, jellies, peanuts or candies. Returning to the gift shop this spring are tasty and crunchy Good Earth Peanuts, boasting butter-toasted, honey-roasted and chocolate covered varieties to tempt your taste buds.
