“A fun place to spend a hour or so”

Cockrell Mercantile Company

Attraction details
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Cockrell's is a neat store but not exactly a tourist attraction. We enjoy spending time checking out the various kitchen equipment, accessories and gadgets as well as the home decor.

The setting is what makes it interesting, out of town and set with an old general store feeling it takes you back in time to stroll the narrow aisles of provisions.

Not all that kid friendly as breakables abound. There is a nice lawn area between the buildings where the adult that draws the short straw could keep kids busy for a few minutes.

Great shops, something for everyone. If you need anything for the kitchen, tons of kitchen gadgets. They have food items too, or just get a cup of coffee and browse. Gift shop is also very cute.

I had heard allot of things about Cockrell I was excited to go. It has very interesting decor in each building. Lots of Feista wear and dishes plus cooking items.
I found it to be very pricey and not really a place to find a bargin. I am glad I went but I won't return.

This is a picturesque place consisting of an old time general store and several outbuildings. They have gourmet cooking utensils, unusual condiments, wonderful jams and jellies and tableware for all tastes.

First class all the way. WARNING: They are usually sampling some tasty treat.............sample with caution. You will want to buy a little of everything. If you eat before coming, you may leave with more of your funds intact !!!

Well worth the drive. Highly recommended.
