Great experience for our 5 year old granddaughter! She panned for minerals and stones. The store is full of all kinds of treasures that you won't find anywhere else in town. The lady who runs the store is very knowledgeable. We learned so much from her. Very unique place. Small but fun!

They were very cautious about Covid-19, I liked that. Super friendly and cool place for the family! Looking forward to visit again in the summer.

We had the best experience! wasn't sure about going because I could only afford the basic bag but it was awesome. My kids absolutely loved it and the lady who helped us was incredibly kind to them. I'm so glad we went.
