I have many Great Interior Pictures of this Actual General Store that Dates Back to 1863. Located on Scenic Cobble Stone Street with Red River Just across the Road. So many great pictures that is operational and filled with Old and New Merchandise. Old Cash Register over 147 years old. Listed with a National Register of Historic Places by the United States Department of Interior. A Place all of America "Must See'"

This place has to be seen to be believed. They have everything: cast iron, toys, hardware, cooking equipment, and more. I saw things for sale I haven't seen in decades. The 1910 cash register is still in use for cash purchases so find an ATM first.

Forgot about the second story of the store on our first visit, so we returned to explore again. Found some adorable Christmas gifts. Cute, cute, cute store! But in a hardware kind of way. Unusual gifts, pots (jambalaya!) and just about any setup for an outdoor fish fry. Even men enjoy shopping here! You may take a trip down memory... More

Located in the historic river front, is this wonderful general store. They still use the giant cash register and hand write receipts. If you need a child's gift, cookware, a plate of glass, decorations, or really ANY HARDWARE you can most definitely find it here. When we were there, they had a succulent garden so you could build your own... More

We had such fun finding old-fashioned stocking stuffers and replicas of toys from past eras. Lots of useful and fun items. You'll spend some time roaming the aisles. Great fun.

I loved this store !! So much to look at. It brought back a lot of childhood memories. So many items like MawMaw had at her house. So many toys that I played with as a child. You will not be disappointed shopping at this fine store. It's really a treat to step back in time.

Check out the original hardware store to shop as well as soak up some history. Fun for sharing stories. Don't forget the upstairs - beautiful gift items,: including totes, purses, original art, home decor, rain gauges, the Christmas trees and ornaments. Allow enough time to wind through the aisles - you will find some "treasure" you didn't even know you... More

Stepping into a piece of history was cool but for me, that's kind of where the "cool" ended. They have quite a bit of stuff but I didn't get the "wow, I have to have that". Maybe if I hadn't read all the raving reviews, my expectations wouldn't have been so high. I am glad I stopped in and the... More
