“Blast From the Past”
Reviewed 19 March 2014

This is a very old store that has a little of everything. Its in the historical area. There is an old fashioned drug store counter, complete with old stools. There is a really cool mannequin of John Wayne. It's a great store to browse in.

“Can you say souvenirs?”
Reviewed 20 February 2014

This spot has tons of great souvenirs for those who are interested in collecting them. Anyone that needed a gift for a kid or a grandchild could not walk out empty-handed.

Fun to roam through and see all the "stuff"

“A step back in time”
Reviewed 16 February 2014

A step back in time, going into an old fashion general store, complete with real root beer floats. Great Store, nice people, lots of great old stuff. An inexpensive must see in Jefferson Texas.

“These Type Stores Continue To Disappear”
Reviewed 6 February 2014

If you have not visited one of these type stores then this one might be for you. It has somewhat more modern “things” in the store that the truly old time stores have, however a lot of these places seem to be disappearing year after year. This one does have a lot from the past and it is worth your time to visit.We are heading back in the near future and will post some photos.

“You will get lost in the candy”
Reviewed 25 January 2014

Really cool store. You will find all those old time candies you had as a child. Lots of speciality items and samples. It will take you a while to see it all.
