Real, old timey feel to this eclectic trading post, a must stop for the tourist in Manitou Springs. Open every day but Weds. which, I think, is kind of an unusual day to be closed but it's an unusual store so that works!

Jonathan, Thank you for visiting our store and liking what you see here. We close on Wednesdays because our records show that on average Wednesday is our slowest day. However, we can change our schedule if we find that a different day is better to close. Sincerely, Mike Graham More

Walked up the hill, waited around until ten o'clock just to find that it is closed on Wednesdays. But from a glance in the Windows looks like a fun place to visit.

The old west trading post were full of a little everything, well this place mirrors that. You could wander through it for an hour and still not see it all. Conchos of the best quality for 4 dollars. Would have cost me twice that at Tandy. Hats of all types, cowboy, gambler, top hats, odd items, old type Marshall badges.... More

Easily my favorite store in Manitou Springs, lots of cowboy hats, suede and leather, great Bolo necklaces, furs, cow hide rugs, suede and leather jackets, key chains, bracelets, wall decor... everything is made beautifully and priced affordable. The staff is very nice. You will find something for everyone in this store, I highly recommend!!

Nice place to stop in and check out while in Manitou Sprigs. This was a cool break from the marathon shopping my wife and her mom were doing... I usually find the "chair for the husbands" in most shops and wait for the ladies to peruse and then head to the next shop, but this place was interesting to me... More

I'm honestly a little surprised that this store has as higher ratings as it does. When we went, we were some of the only people in there. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. Perhaps because of the lack of customers at the time, the owner spent a while chatting to us one on one. They had Stetson hats and... More
