There is an amazing wooden city, hand carved, that is definitely worth seeing. They also have handmade crafts and Polish Pottery. They are very friendly and are proud to show their wares. Some of the gifts are very unique.

After 14 years as a Mission Shoppe to help the people of Slovakia (and 30 other countries), the Slovak Folk Craft store (with its amazing animated woodcarving) has closed as of Jan. 5, 2015. Thank you to all who visited and supported this endeavor over the years. It was an amazing place to visit, shop and learn about the Slovak... More

Animated wood carving of the nativity is a must see. The owner of the Slovak store had this created by Slovakian artisan several years ago. There is probably nothing like it anywhere in United States One of the best selections a Polish pottery in the state

This shop was very disappointing. Their brochure and website brag about the mission to help the unemployed from Slovakia. The animated wood carving is impressive,  but there is very little craft wise from Slovakia. Most is Polish, Czech, etc. No dolls, blankets, walking sticks, or crafts. The little they did have I can buy from Amazon. The woman working there... More

This mission store is a MUST if you are traveling on Interstate 79, North or South. It's just one mile away and seeing the huge woodcarving will have you saying "I am SO glad we stopped!". Something for everyone from the Polish pottery to fair trade items from 30 different countries. Their motto is "Every customer is a missionary"; that... More

The big attraction here is a 17' x 8' x 6' wood carving of a collection of scenes from a Slovak village. Beautifully designed and crafted, it has a number of moving parts that bring the village to life. A narrative account of its creation provides insight into the craftsmen from Slovakia who created it. The shop has a few... More

Excellent selection of items for sale and an awesome animated wood carving from Slovakia to see. Owners have been to Slovakia several times on teaching and mission trips. Some monies are returned to the Slovakian artisans.
