Owner description: An old-fashioned country store with many unique items for sale.
Reviewed 14 October 2013

This store has a lot of items you might see elsewhere, but not all together in one store, and some things I've only seen in catalogs. A lot of nostalgia items for baby boomers like certain candies or sodas, but also upscale home decor pieces. I found a 'survival' bracelet for my nephew and a twig crayon for my young niece. Nice stocking stuffers.

Expected more " old timey " type products for sale, in keeping with the tradition of the store. Didn't expect so much candy. I did expect there to be expensive clothing there, (as I had heard of the particular brands that they sell there before my trip), which is why I didn't buy any. . Overall was just disappointed because I thought I would be able to walk in and purchase a unique item or two that you wouldn't be able to find anywhere else. Instead I walked out with a bottle of Dr.Bronner's soap and a couple of small bags of chocolate covered almonds.

It may look like, well it's nothing from the outside, but on the inside is history within. Go back in time to pop in the bottle and moon pies. Buy all the old favorite toys you shared as a child like sock monkeys, checkers, wood toys, lunch boxes, collectibles, kitchen ware including all iron skillets and accessories. Granite ware and then jump in to the next room for all your hiking gear and clothes. Continue on to shoes, boots and mens clothes, all top name brand. Step outback to the on sale schoolhouse and find bargins half price. There is hours of shopping and snacking fun at Mast Old General Store. You'll be glad you stopped.

Went with family who had been before so they knew the drill.. went to the back store with the shoe outlet (tried on and bought of course) then to the front outlet to the register to pay where I again spent money on an incredible jacket for $5! Yes $5 - they called it a dress but I bought it to be a jacket. Also loved the general store part with the candy, more shoes, post cards, and all kinds of cool things one might love to have. Bought candy, of course, shared in the car, eating sugar we didn't need but loved!
