I have many Great Interior Pictures of this Actual General Store that Dates Back to 1863. Located on Scenic Cobble Stone Street with Red River Just across the Road. So many great pictures that is operational and filled with Old and New Merchandise. Old Cash Register over 147 years old. Listed with a National Register of Historic Places by the United States Department of Interior. A Place all of America "Must See'"

Such nice words. Thanks for visiting. We can usually keep the guys occupied while the ladies shop and stroll. I'm glad you found some neat items while you were here. I hope the 1 star rating is a typo. Thanks again.

We really enjoyed our visit at the general store! A delightful, quaint step back in time. From the old-fashioned children's toys, to the wonderful little florist shop, to the practical nuts and bolts, this place is one of a kind. The displays and countertops were...More

This store has high quality cooking utensils and kitchen gadgets. Lots of old fashioned toys, of good quality. You can find things here that you can't find anywhere else.

Quaint but nothing outstanding about it. I was looking for unusual but mostly newer items that you can find anywhere

Thanks for visiting. I'm sorry you were disappointed. I don't understand "unusual but mostly newer items that you can find anywhere" means. A lot of what we sell is unusual, and all of it is new merchandise.

You might find something in this store you never knew you needed! :) Ice cold cokes at the front door were amazing.

Kaffie-Frederick's is a local icon. Not only will you find a unique selection of items (toys, housewares, etc.), but also you can find everyday necessities (nails, tools, get keys made). What I love most S the upstairs - especially during the Christmas season with all...More
