Good spot for a coffee break on the road.

Charming eclectic shop ... and a welcome stop for a delicious coffee served by the "Grumpy" barista.

My husband and I shopped at Black Spur Emporium on a Saturday afternoon. There were some pretty neat items in the store. The prices were a little expensive. There was lots of metal work. The lady in the store could have been friendly.

Nice little shop, with iron items and metal yard art. It has a lot of fun stuff to look at. They had some horse drawer pulls also. Friendly shop keepers.
