When I read these people who complain about how small a place Mentone is, I have to say if you dont want to go to a small, quaint, quiet place, then head to the city. Peace, quiet and low stress is what Mentone is all about. Head on down the mountain to town if you want to shop in a bigger store.

I have to go with the other reviewer. I mean if this is called an attraction, someone should get a clue. Mentone was much smaller than my husband and I could have ever imagined. The shops located on "the square" are, well, very small town-ish. People were friendly though.

overpriced, but nice, sometimes the owner isnt all that friendly, sometimes she is.

Who choses these "Attractions" anyway? This is not an attraction, it's a store in Mentone with, what can best be described as neo-hippy womens clothes, beads and accessories. At least they have something, most all of the shops in Mentone have nothing but schlock, trashy souvenirs and little bottles of extract of things I've never heard of. There is one wood working shop offering a few interesting items. Beyond that, if you're looking for some type of arts and crafts you have to travel a mile or so down the hill to 'Miracle Pottery' or a few miles the other way to Inca Connection. That's it.
As for actual attractions, don't expect to find any such thing in Mentone. DeSoto falls is very nearby with a waterfall just a few steps from the parking lot. Also, DeSoto state park with some nice hiking trails is close.
