I was hoping to pick up some last-minute Christmas gifts on my way home for the holidays. The reviews of this place for so great that I thought I would make a detour to have a look. Poor decision; it's defunct. Also, the rest of what I saw of the town was slummy, and the people were rude. Don't bother!

The Bare Wall was stop #2 on our one-day tour of Harrisburg (we started with breakfast at Roxy's). As a former resident of Harrisburg, I was sharing the "best of" with a new friend. Bare Wall was truly at the top of the list as the most magical experience of our day. There are few gems like this out there... More

Tucked away in an historic neighborhood near PA's Capitol this little shop keeps providing interesting gifts for people who can find it on Green St. It has been there for years so they must be doing something right.

No matter the occasion, Ronn and Bob have an offering that is just right for gift giving. A shopper for many years now, I highly recommend The Bare Wall to locals and visitors alike. A must-stop for all, just one block from the Capitol complex.

I've lived in Downtown Harrisburg for 6 years, actually a block from this place for 3 years and never even knew the name of this place. I would just see them sitting outside with old books no one wanted to buy. I would never expect this place to be number 2 on Harrisburg's places to visit. Don't expect much from... More

I have shopped at the Bare Wall for well over 25 years - l can't say enough good things about this wonderful store. Ron has something for everyone and for every occasion - jewelry, pottery, cards, candles, books, kids books, wooden kitchen tools, ETC. I would highly recommend this shop to anyone. If you are looking for that "just right"... More

If you're going to Harrisburg, don't miss this eclectic little shop. For great gifts, cards, and conversation, there's no place better!

The visitor from NC must have had his/her eyes closed when visiting the Bare Wall. For me, the Bare Wall is always on my “must visit” list when I’m in Harrisburg. Ronn and Bob are so helpful….if you need a special card or a special gift, just ask them for guidance. They are sure to have what you need. And,... More

while I found this to be a nice little (& let me emphasize "little") shop, it definitely DID NOT warrant being Number 3 ---or 4, or 5, or 6, or 7......on a Harrisburg Must See List Owners very nice/friendly but even they expressed amazement to be on a Top Ten list !

As a Harrisburg resident and neighbor of the Bare Wall Gallery, I can attest to the outstanding service and products you will be sure to find at the Bare Wall. Ronn and Bob can provide you with history of the historic neighborhood, help you find the perfect gift and then wrap it much better than (I could anyway). You'll find... More
