Arrived in Tucumcari this afternoon and visited this store... by far and away the best store on Route 66 that we've visited so far. From 'Route 66' items (many made in-house) to lovely items in their own right... Just fantastic...!!

Yvonne was just closing up when we stumbled in after our dinner, but she (and her cute doggie) welcomed us for a look round, a last minute purchase and a chat.

Had some time to kill so stopped in not expecting much, but was taken back by the wide selection of gifts, travel wear, jewelry and seemingly something for everyone. The owners, OMG!!! what a hoot. Great little place in a small little town.
