Awesome to see some toys "I" used to play with. If you can't find it there, they probably know where to get it. Great kiddy peddle cars, the real kind where it is child power, not battery that makes it go. Story has been around 150 yrs.

Similiar to the Vermont Country Store. Lots of merchandise to see. Old time cash registers still used today; probably the same used at the time of the stores founding. Some one of a kind items.

If you love vintage items, this is the store for you! Wonderful quality merchandise. I especially enjoy shopping in the kitchen utensils area. So many neat things!

While visting Natchitoches, on our 2nd day we decided to stop in Keffie-Frederick I wish we would have gone in our first day so we would have been able to spend more time there the 2nd day. Every isle had unique and clever items to look at. We ended up buying really interesting gifts and a few things for ourselves!... More

We stayed in town for 3 days and this shop was very neat. There was a lot of stuff to look at and buy. The building was very old and historic, if you are in the area it is a must!

This store was a very fun and nostalgic stop for me (a small town girl who moved to the big city 35 years ago). They have a little of everything...hardware, yard & garden tools, kitchen gadgets and even toys! It was impossible for my hubby and I to leave without buying a surprise for the grandkids. This is worth 20-30... More

This old hardware store located on historic Front Street in Natchitoches is a great place to spend an hour on a rainy afternoon. Even if you are not looking for anything in particular you will most probably find something you can't live without.

Had to take my husband here on his first trip to Natchitoches for the vast array of, well, everything. Takes you back to the old fashioned "one stop shopping" mercantile hardware store days. Where else can you buy a straw hat, toys, nails, fan belts and upscale gifts in the same location? Must see stop!
