This is exactly what you expect from a gift shop. The people working there are very nice and the place is clean and nice to check out. If you like rocks then this is the place to go.

So many tshirts, coffee cups, trinkets, etc. Perfect place for souvenirs. Walk down the hill for a smaller little shop for nicer cut rocks and jewelry with a selection of larger rocks outside. Also, Big Mo is incredible and you shouldn't leave without getting a...More
