This shop has been in Boone for a long time although it is not the original it is still great. It has a little of everything for everyone including children. They have a candy room with new and old candy you can purchase by the pound, clothing, shoes, camping equipment and housewares. Truly a treasure.

Great place to go with the whole family. Store has a little of everything. So much fun to check the merchandise out. From the oldest to the youngest in the family you will find something that will make you smile. A favorite place to shop from locals to visitors in the Boone area.

This location, as well as the original location in Valle Crucis, have a large selection of home goods, clothing, shoes/boots, almost anything you might look for in an old fashioned general store!

Our kids absolutely LOVED the candy barrels. We have 4 children, so we limited them to 4 pieces of candy each. Paid $27 for 16 single size pieces of candy. Absolutely insane. Cool experience, but make sure you take a 2nd mortgage on your house first...

General Store..................just another Chinese filled merchandise store. Candy best part. Expensive for what is there. Stores in Valle Crusis are original types and interesting to look at. Many other type stores less expensive.

Conveniently located on King Street in downtown Boone (with its own parking), this two-level store is a delightful mix of an old-timey country store (with barrels of candy and toys for the kids) and the latest in clothes and equipment for outdoor adventure. The displays are tastefully-done (especially their Christmas windows). There's an ample number of knowledgeable, pleasant, and helpful... More

Barbara, I'm so happy that you enjoyed your visit to the store. Our mast employees put a lot of time and thought into our store windows. Everyone seems to love them but they don't always get a ton of recognition. Thanks for the compliment - it means a lot! From your review, I can tell that you notice the little... More

From garden gloves to Ugg shoes and loads more there is something for everyone here. A long and interesting history of how life used to be in the mountains. Well worth a visit.

Fun old fashioned general store mercantile with barrels of old fashioned candies. We enjoyed filling a bag with family favorites. They also sell kitchen gadgets, bread mixes, jellies, and jams. They also sell clothing, although it is very expensive. It is a well-known tourist area and there are a lot of people, but it is still fun to visit a... More
