  • My boys loved it here! Will definitely return whenever we come back. We purchased the super bucket and the boys found atleast 50 precious stones and fossils. They are very knowledgeable and take their time to show you each rock. This is definitely a stop everyone with children should do!
  • Great place! My boyfriend and I found beautiful rings at a great price. The owner and her son were so helpful and friendly. Great atmosphere with great music, they even offer a veteran discount. When I had left my card, the store owner ran out to give it to me. I will definitely be back! I forgot to mention that they have a great selection of gifts that were adorable and t-shirts that I absolutely loved. Great job!
