  • A 5 cent cup of coffee, and a place that I can wear my bib overalls, flannel shirt, and feel as if I belong there....part of the family that goes way back..........sit on the back porch and say hey to all who enter through the back door........have missed it since retiring to the beach, but plan to visit soon with my younger brother....the mountains are just plain magic, like you would expect heaven to be......
  • This is a true old time general store that has branched to multiple locations in western NC and still has functioning mail boxes for local residents. You can find all kinds of wares including outdoor equipment. We have been to all the locations but nothing beats this original store in a set of historical buildings. The candy store right down the street has the largest collection of candy, both the hard to find treats we remember as kids as well as current selections, we have ever seen.
  • We like all of the Mast locations, but this is the most scenic. It is basically a old-timey, country themed gift store. Not the mass-produced junk with local city name printed on it sort of gift shop. They also have all the camping supplies you need.
  • Pet friendly is an understatement. Every employee not only made my wife and I welcome, they all also played, petted and gave our dog treats, with our permission of course. And the memories of pop guns and sligshots WOW. Love this place.
  • The Original since 1883. If you can't find it here, you don't need it. Unbelievable. Oh, by anything and get a free sticker at the counter. Candy is buy one get one free. Seek out this original in Valle Crucis. Pretty cool.
