T shirts are reasonably priced and they have a good selection. Many items to choose from. Employees were helpful and friendly.

Quirky Roadside attraction that was well worth a stop. Mystery house was unique . Cost 5.00 for the 4 of us to go in and lasted 30 minutes. Worth it. It's so neat. I just love these types of things!

Typical tourist gift shop. Nice selection of t-shirts, rocks and souvenier items. On the main road outside of town.
