This general store reminds me of my childhood days (I'm 65)! In some ways it's like a museum also! The Radio Flyer toys and trikes as well as all the other (NON computer) playthings for children are just wonderful to have available. For ladies who have your husbands along, this is the place you need to leave them while you... More

This is a fabulous old general store featuring a multi variety of items from buttons to bolts. The old store will take you back to yester-year for your shopping pleasure.

Like stepping back in time, old hardware stores are living history. And we get to wander through and reminisce. Always a treat to watch the children's faces as they explore the wares.

Neat store full of a very wide variety of interesting products. Being rated #1 as the site to see is more of a reflection of excitement (or lack of) in Natchitoches than as a store that is a "must" see. Overall, friendly employees and for us, an enjoyable half hour.

Really enjoyed looking through all the things this general store has to offer - especially those old-fashioned games like Wooly Willy! The 12-year-olds with us had a great time. We went back two more times!

A stop in Kaffie-Frederick is a must when in town. You can view/purchase fine china then go further back into the store and buy parts for your horse and buggy setup! The place is modern as well as a step back in time. Been there countless times but still go just to look or to find that "hard-to-find" hardware item.

Be ready to spend at least an hour here, more if you like to cook, tinker or just like good solid stuff! Hint.........guys the upstairs is for the lady stuff, stay downstairs for the manly man stuff.

My husband and i loved the old mercantile store. they had so many need things to see both old and new. The people were very friendly and it was like stepping back into time when the general store had everything you needed. So worth the time to stop and take a look!!
