We stop in this store every time we visit Hot Springs. I never know what we will find and we seem to always leave with something! A souvenir for the kid, a toy for the cat, a yoga towel for me... There is always something different, something odd. and always interesting!

This was my favorite shop in Hot Springs! It is now Earthbound Trading Co. :-( If the store was still in business, I would have spent way too much there.

For someone who hates shopping for clothes, I spent an awfully long time in that shop. Among art and artifacts, incense and intensity, their garments, made from soft cotton in lovely colors, tempted even me to try and buy. This is a store to fall in love with. The sales lady's non-judgmental, no-pressure, friendly attitude and helpful advice put me... More

My favorite find on Central Avenue! Unique items and gifts including clothing, candles, jewelry, accessories and funky household pieces! Very friendly staff. A must stop whenever I'm in Hot Springs!

No longer there, needs to be updated more frequently, was always my favorite store downtown. Taken over by earth bound trading company, not nearly as cool, also miss the gorilla.

Perfect place to find souvenirs and eclectic gift ideas. We happened to be there on a great sale day and found more bargains than we expected. I am glad we decided to park close by so I didn't have to carry all the things I bought around with me. I didn't expect to find so many neat things.

This was the first shop we stumbled into in Downtown Hot Springs, and I have to say that it is pretty neat if you are looking for hookah pipes and incense and just small/big trinkets to put around the house. A bit on the hippy side for my taste, but the people at the front desk were so nice, they... More
