The Smelly Gourmet at the Historic Banes House in Metamora, Indiana. Steve, aka Smelly and Brenda Collier make an experience for their guests gibr days a week in one of Metamora's most unique shops! Just meeting Smelly himself is an experience.

Products include the "best cappuccino this side of the Atlantic", Brenda's super silky bath and body products and delightfully aromatic home fragrance products, Steve's hundreds of bright, colorful witty designs in his "Bits of Wisdom" refrigerator magnets that he makes in the shop, old dead computer motherboards recycled into clocks, and of course, the best gourmet popping corn in thirteen varieties, packaged in recycled liquor, wine and beer bottles! Beautiful had painted furniture by Joan, Smelly's mom. Guests enjoy not only the village's water-powered grist mill, belgian draft horse drawn canal boat ride, rides on vintage rail equipment of the Whitewater Valley Railroad, three ice cream shops and four fudge shops, but the warm, friendly atmosphere inside the Smelly Gourmet with a little background music, burning rocks and other oil lamps, and the best coffee and cappuccino to found for miles around.
