This was my favorite shop in Hot Springs! It is now Earthbound Trading Co. :-( If the store was still in business, I would have spent way too much there.

For someone who hates shopping for clothes, I spent an awfully long time in that shop. Among art and artifacts, incense and intensity, their garments, made from soft cotton in lovely colors, tempted even me to try and buy. This is a store to fall in love with. The sales lady's non-judgmental, no-pressure, friendly attitude and helpful advice put me... More

No longer there, needs to be updated more frequently, was always my favorite store downtown. Taken over by earth bound trading company, not nearly as cool, also miss the gorilla.

Perfect place to find souvenirs and eclectic gift ideas. We happened to be there on a great sale day and found more bargains than we expected. I am glad we decided to park close by so I didn't have to carry all the things I bought around with me. I didn't expect to find so many neat things.

This was the first shop we stumbled into in Downtown Hot Springs, and I have to say that it is pretty neat if you are looking for hookah pipes and incense and just small/big trinkets to put around the house.

We've been visiting Hot Springs annually for about the last 7 years. We always stroll the downtown and always peruse this shop. It is a quirky and earthy collection of various oddities, jewelry, and decor - always something different and things I have not seen before. We enjoy exploring and always end up with a unique souvenir! Sometimes there are... More
