This place has real fossils for sale. When our kids were small, they begged to come here, instead of any toy store.

This shop carries the real deal for any fossil/rock collector weather you are a beginner or expert collector. Prices are a bit higher than other fossil shops but they don't have your "run of the mill" fossils that everyone else has. You don't have to...More

The items in this store are BEAUTIFUL. That is probably an understatement actually. The woman at the store was super friendly and encouraged us to touch things. Everything in here was pretty reasonably priced considering what they were. Everyone should visit this store.

I need to first say, the young gentlemen working when we first arrived was excellent. We had just finished lunch and I had my carryout container. He politely told me no food was allowed and offered to keep it at the counter for me. We...More

There is a great collection of gems and fossils. Not all of it local but a lot of it is. Some of the stuff is a bit expensive, but it is as close as you can get to taking home something from the dinosaur museum.
