Drums, masks, statues, musical instruments, bags, clothing, furniture, music, and so much more. This is one of the best places to find wonderful handmade arts and crafts of Africa, outside of Africa. The range and selection is truly impressive, and prices are unexpectedly reasonable. Of all the man made attractions in Fort Bragg, this is without a doubt my favorite.... More

You won't find another store like this. Amazing and one of a kind pieces. Seemed a bid expensive, but like I said it's unique!

We had passed this store many times and on the last day of our trip went in. I could live in this store, I loved everything in it. I wanted everything and it all comes from Africa. So cool!

My husband and I stumbled upon this store while on our honeymoon. It was by far the best place we bought anything during the whole two weeks on the west coast. We're glad we decided to stop. We now have an amazing djembe drum and a beautiful altar cloth. The people who work there are exceptionally nice, helpful, and welcoming.... More

I have traveled to Africa several times and have not found a store here that carries quite the selection of African paraphernalia as this gem of a place. I was also impressed by the owner, who lives part-time in Africa and is using the proceeds from the store to help support projects there.

We found this place after seeing a postcard in our hotel lobby and decided to seek it out. While the address is north highway one it is actually South of Fort Bragg. Awesome stuff though! Crazy tribal masks and drums and tons of beads. The gentleman who helped us is from Africa and was a delight to listen to as... More

My family and I came upon this incredible collection of African crafts and instruments when we were visting Mendocino. Wow. a museum worthy collection of things in a warehouse setting. The owners (husband and wife,from Africa and the US) were kind and knowlegeble and our kids loved every minute of it. We definately recommend searching out this hidden treasure. The... More
