“A Wonderful Place to Poke Around”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2014

This is the oldest general store in all of Louisiana. It was stuffed full of both old and new items. The ceiling was very high and the floors were made of thick wood planks. We spent an hour just poking around the place. They even had a lot of jellies and honey to sample. Quite enjoyable.

“Pretty sure they have it all”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2014

Eclectic old hardware store, probably something for everyone. Shabby chic upstairs, toys and cooking downstairs. Worth the visit just to say you saw an old hardware store

“Worth a look see.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

We did enjoy looking around. It is worth the time to look around. The people working in the store were so polite and helpful. It reminded me of my favorite mercantile store in Old Forge, N.Y. which is definitely an experience not to miss.
