On the busy tourist street, it feels like the (small) chain store that it is. Mix of small "old fashioned" items and upscale clothing. The original store, barn annex, and cluster of Artist shops in nearby Valle Crucis is a more enjoyable destination drive.

Our toddler really enjoyed looking at the books and toys. We all enjoyed the old fashioned candy! Definitely worth a stop if you're in Boone.

Have visited the original Mast General Store and their sister store in Columbia, SC but this was my first time visit to their Boone location. A nice mix of clothing, tableware, kitchen items, pet gifts and outdoor merchandise. Could spend many hours and many dollars...More

The old barrels full of candies by the pound brought back memories of childhood days gone by and I love the sound of the creaking boards of the old wooden floor. I did find it a little expensive for my taste, somewhat more than I...More
