About Our Stores


This “About Us” page is really about YOU – our precious customer. We have become a favorite and frequent stop for you and your family on your Hilton Head, Amelia Island and Savannah vacations. We have been proudly serving you for over 20 years.

You know us for always having something new and interesting to sample from our carefully selected award winning gourmet products. We have daily samples and are willing to open any jar for you to sample, should you so wish.


You know us for the eclectic and whimsical gifts, toys and books we carry; always to pique your curiosity and to perhaps even give you and your children a chuckle. We also have fun and useful gifts for your four legged friends as well.


In Harbour Town, Amelia Island, and City Market, Savannah, you know you will always find the best ice cream selection as well as coffees and slushies. In addition, the Savannah stores have some different items not available to our Hilton Head guests and Amelia Island has items not available to either Hilton Head or Savannah. Most of these items are a click away.

We ship anywhere in the continental US. FREE SHIPPING for purchases over $100 and only $10 for other purchases.

We are a true family owned and family run business. You will find the owners, Lynne and Michael Snaid, in one of the stores almost every day, as well as their children over the summer. Michael and Lynne are the ones with the funny accents, but feel blessed and proud to be citizens of this great country and to meet so many wonderful and interesting people from the USA and abroad. Be sure to stop and say hi to us. Many of our colleagues have worked at the Cinnamon Bear for several years and are truly like our extended family. Danny Swinton is our senior manager, who has been at the store in Harbour Town for over 15 years and is well known to many of you, and is now in charge of our Amelia Island store.

We pride ourselves on meeting your expectations – simple as that. We want you to have a fun and flavorful experience with every visit to any of our locations, at Harbour Town on Hilton Head, at City Market Savannah, at River Street Savannah, or at Amelia Island Fernandina Beach. Your vacation time is well earned and valuable, we recognize that and want to enhance your experience.

Feel free to contact either of us for any reason

We look forward to serving you over and over again.

Take care, drive and fly safe –

We miss you already
