Owner description: The Nation's Oldest Drugstore as we knew it no longer exists. It is with great sorrow the chapter on this building's history has now been changed once again. The building still exists but is being changed from the charm it once was. The building was sold and will now be Potter's Wax Museum. I feel deeply honored that we got to be a part of it's history and dwell in this space for 5 years. It was a time of new beginnings for us and it enabled us to grow in so many ways. So now we move on to a new chapter and other new beginnings. We here at Old City Remedies still exist, just not at that location. We will use this time to expand and market ourselves and products in a way that we can reach more people. We do thank you for all the friendships we have developed and smiling faces that would come back again and again to give us their love and support. Visit us on Sat. or Sun. and you'll find us at the St. Augustine Flea Market. We still have all our great products like: loose leaf herbs, tea and natural skin care products created in our warehouse. Come on in and say hey, you'll be glad you did. It may not look like much on the outside but on the inside there is magic everywhere. Many Blessings to you.

“Museum is fun but thats about it”
Reviewed November 11, 2012

We went in there to see the free museum,which was small,but had neat stuff in it .The building itsefl is really neat too. Now the dislikes--The staff was very RUDE and pushy.The lady working there kept pressuring me to buy 'herbs; or some kind of junk.She kept pushing us even after we nicely told her we do not use herbal remedies.The store part is worth seeing,but stay clear of the rude 'herbal 'lady.

My wife and I visited three years ago and we bought several items from the Old City Remedies shop. In particular my wife has loved the pure Shea Butter which got rid of her Acne Rosea on her cheeks and also occasional bouts of eczema. Fantastic find and she is only now, after three years, nearing the end of the tub she bought. We highly recommend it. Fabulous team too. She has just recently been back in touch with them.

“Like it”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

This is a nice free attraction to go to to spend some time and see a realistic recreation of an old drugstore, quite authentic. It has the main part with all the stuff and another room (watch your head for the fans) with souvenirs and stuff. It's all right

“Ghost are awesome in this old store at night”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

We saw several apparitions in the review of the photos here. Yet never actually could see them in the storeoly in the camera really awesome. The store itself was a nice flashback to history. Well worth checking out!
