This store has a lot of great t-shirts and souvenirs for tourists to check out and buy! The only thing I'd reccomend is that they make a website where you can shop online too.

Perfect place for souvenirs, plenty for all ages. Wide assortment of typical items but also tons of tees and sweatshirts as well as biker and service outterwear. Well worth the time to browse. Staff was very nice

This is one of those fun touristy stores, jam packed with what my father-in-law called jimcracks and jeejaws; items fun to look at and be tempted by, often ending up in a garage sale several years later.
We did find some postcards (shows our age); as well as a bit of nostalgia. They had Beamans, Blackjack, and Clove chewing gums. Just the items for a family reunion and 50th wedding anniversary celebration, which was the reason for the trip. And, just the items for three sisters who hadn't shared these chewing gums (or even seen them) in decades.

Wallace's Trading Post was advertised and had coupons in the GO Williamsburg travel book. The store had souvenirs for every taste - t-shirts, hats, trinkets and more. There were sale items, 2 for 1 pricing, and my favorite fun t-shirts where proceeds supported a local pet shelter puppie love. The sales clerk was friendly and honored our coupon, plus explained that with our receipt we can get a free ice cream at the general store. Nice that after an unprecedented year merchants are working together.

Looking for fudge, I found watermelon fudge for the 1st time and loved it. Wallace's Trading Post is "tourist city" but in a good way with all the expected items, including a large section of western gear, Minnetonka shoes, and of course colonial themed items of all types. A nice place to stop and look around for a few minutes.

The grandson's love this store. Such a selection of items for Grandma, a 17 year old as well as the five year old. Plenty of items from which to choose and oh, by the way....the fudge is super!! My one grandson collects knives and each time we visit, he gets a new knife. I usually end up with my bamboo wind chimes and the youngest one wants one of everything!
