Discovered this gem about 15 years ago during one of my many business trips to San Antonio. A little hard to get to from I-35 going through an aging residential neighborhood, but so very worth multiple visits. Charming old Texas train station town deco, but the real reason is authentic, USA-made SAS shoes at 30-40% off retail, with discontinued styles... More

The "old town" atmosphere, general store, antique cars and buggies, all give the place a special feeling. The sales folks are also... More

Lots of old cars in pristine condition greeted us in the parking lot. When we walked in, it was like walking into a general store you would find on "Little House on... More

This trip was to enjoy the best remembered, friendliest, and knowledgeable people regarding shoes we have ever met. The atmosphere is very comforting and when you think you need help the people are instantly available. There is absolutely no pressure to buy... More

You can purchase a bag of popcorn for 5 cents. A coke for sells for 10 cents! Antiques and fun displays to see. The staff are very... More

This place was amazing! Everyone was so friendly and helpful. I was able to find sandals for my hard-to-fit feet and my husband was delighted with the 5 cent coffee and popcorn.
