We loved this store! This general store has apparently been a fixture on Front Street for decades. It's got a fascinating array of products that range from general hardware to children's toys to house wares and gifts. If you want a practical souvenir from Natchitoches, this is your place. I bought a great, classic pocket knife which is in my... More

This place has sought after hardware and cooking items. Beautiful giftware and unique toys that I haven't seen since I was a kid. Also meant trendy items.

A relaxing trip thru history, hardware for the basic home owner. It's remind me of the hardware store in my very small town 50 plus years ago. Whatever you needs , they had for general repairs. Prices are little high but trying to made a profit.

I can see why this is #1 on TA. This place is great to browse through even if you don't like to shop. It's got everything from kitchen utensils to toys and everything in between.

This is the coolest store ever. Someone recommended me to "Just go see it", I'm glad we did. It's more than a hardware store so many cool items. They still handwrite their sales tickets and ring you up on an old cash register. You don't see that much anymore. I ended up meeting the owner and he was such a... More
