Things you didn't know you needed until you saw them

Lots of unusual items. Many things by Colorado craftsmen. Beautiful jewelry. A place where you think you have seen it all and then you find a new treasure.

There was a very friendly staff. They had a couple of musicians there the day we went for the Taste of Creede. It was an enjoyable visit.

I was looking for rock, mineral samples from the Creede area. This is the place. Jennie and Lori helped me find a sample of amethyst from a Creede mine.

I own two sets of jewelry from here, which are both absolute favorites and I constantly get complimented on! Everything in this store is awesome, it's easy to see why Johnny Depp scheduled a private midnight shopping spree here (ask the owner about the story!). I also bought an adorable clock here that is one-of-a-kind. Another reviewer mentioned the fossil... More

The Rare Things Gallery is on Main Street of Creede in the Creede Elk's building. Jennie Inge, the owner, makes really beautiful horse hair jewelery. She also has many other products that are very nice, be sure to stop by when you visit or vacation in Creede.

I think there are actually two shops, that have slightly different names right next to each other. The Rare Things Gallery had the large carved sinks with ammonites that someone else mentioned in another review. They also had lots of nice gems and minerals, and we bought some excellent samples.

I was drawn into the store by the sink in the window which has ammonite fossils surrounding it. Although they were out of my price range I bought a small heart shaped soap dish with ammonite in it. Great shop to browse for rare things.
