I loved this store !! So much to look at. It brought back a lot of childhood memories. So many items like MawMaw had at her house. So many toys that I played with as a child. You will not be disappointed shopping at this fine store. It's really a treat to step back in time.

Check out the original hardware store to shop as well as soak up some history. Fun for sharing stories. Don't forget the upstairs - beautiful gift items,: including totes, purses, original art, home decor, rain gauges, the Christmas trees and ornaments. Allow enough time to wind through the aisles - you will find some "treasure" you didn't even know you... More

Stepping into a piece of history was cool but for me, that's kind of where the "cool" ended. They have quite a bit of stuff but I didn't get the "wow, I have to have that". Maybe if I hadn't read all the raving reviews, my expectations wouldn't have been so high. I am glad I stopped in and the... More

Take your time as you go through this fun place. There is so much to see. I found quite a few Christmas gifts that are unique and exciting. I bought some interesting little plants that do not require soil. The lady that helped me, Connie, was so knowledgeable and helpful.

If in Natchitoches, visiting this old hardware store is a must if you've never been there; great for repeat visits too. It's rare that you won't find something you absolutely must have, but the experience itself is great!

There isn't much you won't find here- plants, cast iron, tools, kitchen gadgets, old fashioned toys and if you can think it up, it's probably there. Great place to go Christmas shopping!!

This store is rich in history, old & new items alike. I could spend a lot of time looking & buying. It's an experience. Stop in if you're on Front Street. There's things of interest for men, women, & kids
