A Rock collectors paradise.

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 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.

I could decorate my entire house with things from this gallery. We wondered around for at least an hour looking at everything. The staff is very friendly and helpful. I will go back every time I visit Creede.
