It is one of the oldest stores in Natchitoches. It carries some of everything. Old type of pots and pans. My grandmother went every Christmas eve and bought a gift for someone. She was born in 1899 and lived to be 90. She shopped there often.

fun place to shop for garden tools and home items- lots of Made in America items; Take the time to go to this all-purpose hardware store.

Kaffie-Frederick truly does have a little bit of everything. I highly suggest visiting the store during Christmas time. They decorate the upstairs section-it's like a Christmas wonderland!

Great selection of classic toys, variety of things not seen everyday and plenty of history. We stayed for quite a while because there is so much to see!

Loved the atmosphere of seeing actual items from the past as well as the new "vintage" toys we enjoyed as children. Found several cooking gadgets, too.

This store has everything including history! We enjoyed walking through and looking at all the unique items they had. Plus they had a great sale on Christmas decorations that we took advantage of while we were there. I would definitely recommend stopping by.

This store is packed with everything you need ... and don't need that has anything to do with an old fashioned general store or outdoor living or camping or cooking or home decor including kitchen cabinet hardware or pocket knives or ... you name it! :)

An old style hardware store that has lots of old "stuff" and high quality new merchandise. They had everything from barbecue grills and smokers to nuts and bolts.
