We always stop in here on our visits to Mtns. A truly fun, old time country store with pot belly wood stove. A wide variety of everything from candy to boots.....just a fun experience. Bought a knife this time.

This store has you feeling like you have stepped back in time. Must see while staying in the Boone area.

Even though I grew up in this area , I never got tired of Mast General. I now live in another state, yet we still try to find time to go by the Mast General store in Valle Crucis whenever we drive up to see family. Just as countless other reviewers have stated, it is like a walk into the past. There is something for everyone. My kids as little toddlers loved it and even now as teenagers they get a kick out of all the novelty items. The staff is friendly and the prices aren't too terribly high. This place is a must-stop if you are traveling through Valle Crucis and even if you are on hwy 105 headed to the ski slopes, it is worth the detour. It does get a little crowded on the weekends but they have expanded parking and have opened up other little stores nearby.

We visited the original store and the annex intending to just browse. We left with Christmas presents, a funny t-shirt, a hiking stick, and a load of candy!
Also visited the store next door which carries American handmade products. Spent money there, too.

This small chain of stores offers quaint, old fashioned items and souvenirs as well as everyday products for locals. We spent about 20 minutes in the store but didn't buy anything that peaked our interest. The family history is interesting so talk to the clerks for some info.
