Browns' specializes in fine jewelry and watches (owner John Brown is renowned for his watchmaker skills). But, area residents have also relied on this store for fine gifts as well. You'll find a good selection here of crystal, pewter, china, porcelain, jewelry boxes and wall clocks. While you can find simpler wall clocks at Browns, starting at $40, these are some of the finer decorative timepieces ($250-$595). Browns' Jewelry & Gift Store is at 9 Water St., Thurmont.
