Can't go to Creed without stopping in Rare Things to see what treasures they have. Whether it is some Sam Keith art or art pieces made of 2000 year old bristlecone pine or beautiful handmade horse hair jewelry. I get the best gift pieces for my wife from there!

This store is unusual and interesting. It has recently been remodeled and sells some very beautiful jewelry now. It has rocks that have petrified fish imprinted on them, sinks from beautiful stones, onyx decorations, and much more. We purchased a stone dog watering dish that has received many comments. Be sure and stop in if you are browsing. They are... More

so many interesting and unusual items;definitely not your average gift shop. Even if you don't buy anything it's worth a stop.

Been shopping at Rare Things for over 40 years. Bought some macrame beaded earrings on my first visit. Through the years, I have acquired many of Jenny's pieces. She is a master silversmith, and her stones are the best! In addition, there is a wonderful selection of commercial jewelry. I never leave without buying something that I love!

If you are looking for a keepsake of your trip to the mountains, but you want something beyond the normal souvenirs, this is your shop. Don't be in a hurry or you might miss something.

This is an interesting store with friendly and helpful staff and unique local products. They had a really neat xylophone-type of wind chime with a mallet that I'd never seen anywhere before. Prices seem reasonable.

Nice to place to browse while in Creede. Plenty of unique items for the artistic home decorator and more. Had a chance to chat with a friendly salesperson who explained where the owner gets the pieces displayed and sold in the store. The salesperson (should have asked for her name) was also very knowledgeable about the history of the town... More

I have gone to this retail store every time I am in the area. It never fails to disappoint. I purchased 2 pairs of earrings and a pendant. I look forward to wearing them a long time. The staff was knowledgeable and anxious to fill your "want" list.

A quaint store in a beautiful, historic building. Lots of silver, turquoise, and semi-precious stone jewelry and that one-of-a kind necessity for your home or a gift. Also a loft and outdoor area with planters, chimes, yard accessories. I plan on bringing family and friends on next visit!
