Nice place to stop in and check out while in Manitou Sprigs. This was a cool break from the marathon shopping my wife and her mom were doing... I usually find the "chair for the husbands" in most shops and wait for the ladies to peruse and then head to the next shop, but this place was interesting to me... More

I'm honestly a little surprised that this store has as higher ratings as it does. When we went, we were some of the only people in there. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. Perhaps because of the lack of customers at the time, the owner spent a while chatting to us one on one. They had Stetson hats and... More

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.

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.
