A fascinating antique and curiosity shop filled with unusual items of art, hardware and furniture. We had fun browsing the various rooms and collections. Prices seemed reasonable and some items were absolutely unique. Give yourself at least a half hour to see it.

We couldn't miss this! We went last year and needed to ship things home. Absolutely love all the different items. This is a 'not to miss' place if you like antiques, rough home décor, and unique items.

Interesting to see, but not anything I'm looking for. Quite dusty and disorganized. Certainly a valued shopping place for some, but definitely not everyone's cup of tea.

What an incredible place to shop. If I lived in Arizona I would have bought much more than I did. I had to ship what I did buy home. It's charming yet overwhelming. If you love Southwestern you will love it there. The only thing was how dusty it was. I am allergic to dust!!

Quite a variety of western decor items from small household hooks to large clay pots. Will come back again to shop.

This place has a bit of everything, particularly Southwest/Mexican decor. Lots of old rusty relics, weather worn pieces and some things you wonder, who would ever buy that? But I'm sure someone will. I would consider this a must see on a visit to Cave Creek. You'll see many things you couldn't find elsewhere. Plan on spending at least a... More

It is more like window shopping or like a real life museum. A lot of stuff that maybe you need it but maybe not. A dive in the history of what was in "vogue" years ago. Nice place to visit and sometimes very rare you can buy something, but is more looking at.

This is the kind of place that every tourist should visit. I go each time I am in the area and, bring new friends each time! It is the kind of place that you can spend hours just wandering through the isles or in and out of the several small shed-style buildings on the property. You never know what you... More
