I have gone to this retail store every time I am in the area. It never fails to disappoint. I purchased 2 pairs of earrings and a pendant. I look forward to wearing them a long time. The staff was knowledgeable and anxious to fill your "want" list.

A quaint store in a beautiful, historic building. Lots of silver, turquoise, and semi-precious stone jewelry and that one-of-a kind necessity for your home or a gift. Also a loft and outdoor area with planters, chimes, yard accessories. I plan on bringing family and friends on next visit!

Just a wonderful eclectic shop with some exquisite pieces. Got a handmade bristlecone pine bench for our bedroom there with an insert of jasper. Perfection!! Our friends got a beautiful metal candle holder. You have to stop in here!!

Definitely visit this "one of a kind" destination and find out what Johhn Depp found out when he stopped by. Beautiful and unusual jewelry designs by owner designer Jenny Inge, a jewel in her own right.

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.
