Cool stuff to explore

One of my favorite stores anywhere. I love what they've done with rocks and fossils, but there's much more to be had as well.

A very nice place to find the unusual accessory or gift for the home. Unique art, furniture, wind chimes, pottery. A "rare" mountain shop indeed.

A trinket shop for tourists, I was not impressed with the store. How could a tourist shop be rated so high? Anyway, if you are a shopper, you might find rocks, clocks and other wares to buy here. It didn't seem that rare to me, but I already live in a tourist town.

A must stop on your visit to Creede. Beautiful Objects d'Art from local artists. Don't miss the back patio and upstairs.

This is one of the most unique gift stores I've ever been in. The store offers a variety of crafts from artisans throughout the region. Two levels and an outside patio area will delight you. Don't forget to see the "one of a kind" banister.

Love, love, love this shop. We cannot make a visit to Creede without going in this shop. Jewelry, art objects, rocks, geodes, semi-precious stones, and so much more.

Almost impossible to imagine the quality and extreme good taste of the selection in both shops. Jewelry to die for.
