Great antique store with lots of "guy stuff"! I thought the prices were really fair for the quality of items and the service was great! Very pleasant to do business with and will visit again for sure!

Butch, nice guy, assisted us in the purchase of a hide for our great room. Nice hide, nice fair price. We highly recommend this place while in Manitou Springs. I want to purchase the Buffalo Hide Butch. Left -mail for someone. Anyway, this place is much different than any other of the shops!!! We were there in September 2015

Denny, Thank you for your good comments about Butch and our store. If you are still wanting a Buffalo Hide we have two now. These are the only ones that we will have this year since the tannery has limited output of these best quality hides. Please call me at 719-377-1919 or 719-685-9024 if you want one. Mike More

That's right, I said it! Love Manitou Springs as well but the girlfriend was on her own on this trip and bought a "Voodoo" hat, (reminiscent of SLASH / G&R) and the size didn't work for me. Bummer - right? So I called up to Ruxton's and spoke with Mike Graham who I believe is the "Kingpin" there and he... More

I love shops like this that have so much to browse thru. My husband found a leather holster and belt for a great price, but the staff there was extremely unfriendly. Definitely not much for small talk.

Donna, I want to thank you for your business at our store. I appreciate that you like our unique mix of new and antique goods. My greatest concern though is that you didn't feel as valued as you are by us. And I do remember you, I was the one that helped you and your husband. I am frequently accused... More

First off- they have the best bathroom in manitou (on the street). The store has typical souvenir offerings but also a few little quirky finds and decent prices on jewelry. The staff is great and will offer suggestions for dining and activities that might be off the beaten path.

My three-year old son and I had a great experience here. We were greeted by friendly and helpful staff, who were very accommodating of my little one's indecisiveness (so many wonderful things to buy!). The store had a true trading post atmosphere, with many of the shoppers hanging around and talking to one another. I would highly recommend stopping in... More

This is one of those shops that makes Manitou unique. It's mainly a Western themed store with antiques as well. They've got just about everything western or vintage you could want. You do not want to miss this quaint store!

They have a great collection. We stopped in last January and we purchased a fox fur. The owner could not have been nicer and after the bartering we came away with a great deal. We are going back to Manitou Springs in May, we will definately be making a return trip into this store.
