Based upon recommendations, I stopped by the Mast General Store in Boone, NC...and spent about two hours just browsing! There is a huge area of loose candy in barrels (you buy by the pound), and next to it is a fantastic selection of children's toys and games, some of which I've not seen since I was a child (45+ years...

It was fun to visit had a lot of items, toys etc that I haven't seen in years. We visited both the original one and the one in Boone. The original one had more character it's old and feels more authentic.

This store has about anything you could want. From shoes to the kitchen sink! I've only been to the Mast store in Boone which is right in the middle of it all. This is a cute little college town, that means there is always something going. There are a bunch of stores to hit along the way. Parking is another... More

We visited this location on our recent trip to Boone, Nc. I found the store to have everything you could think of, from fishing hats to candy displayed in barrels just like from a bygone era, of course not just a penny anymore. The floors were old, wood and creeky which ads to the charm. You could brows there for... More

We've been coming to the Boone area for years and each and every time we make sure to stop at Mast General. The have a variety of things, something for everyone. I love their outdoor gear, and the candy shop. It's a must see when in Boone.

A really cool store! Has everything you might need before hitting the hiking trails or cycling the roads. We bought some hiking and cycling books and maps. They are pet friendly and allow the dog to shop along with you; even offering a friendly treat to the dog!

Great place for kids and adults. You can find just about anything in here. The candies are both new and those you haven't seen in a while. Really enjoyed browsing this store...

This is a must stop. It is a step back in time. This is a true old time general store. You can buy candy or tools. The appearance is a step Back over a hundred years. They have several stores. Go to The original in Valle Crucis.

We stopped by Mast as part of a family vaca and found yummies for everybody, jams for dad, pop rocks, bag of candy, sock monkey umbrella for our toddler and just fun shopping all around! Anyone who sells local goods + mellisa and Doug toys is alright. Spend a few hours, go to the annex for ice cream - the... More

We stopped in the shop twice on our week long vacation near Boone. I was so thankful for the courteous cashiers who allowed my 4 year old to drive the tractor around the middle candy barrels. This distraction made it possible for me to actually shop! I loved their selection of ala carte Fiestaware. I was able to replace a... More
