  • Dave's has an excellent collection of the best in minerals - beautiful geodes and every conceivable type of mineral. Downstairs is an excellent collection of prehistoric artifacts - fossils galore.

  • the staff were super friendly and polite ! The guy cashier is the sweetest! complimented me and my friends outfits:) prices are super good, much cheaper than other places. Lots of .90 cents agate and stones , .50 cent tumbles . You can fill a little bag for only 2.95. Great deal I got 15 tumbles for that price ! Regular tumbles are priced well too! 1.50-3.50 for many stones which is very reasonable. Fluorite necklace was about $10.00, fair pricing ! pleasant experience will be back soon 😊
  • Great store for jewelry that doesn't look like you bought it at the mall. Fossils. Crystals. Amber. Strings of semi-precious stones which you can buy as is, or have made into necklaces. My wife bought a silver and turquoise ring for $65, made by a Native American craftswoman. A fossil museum in the basement will entertain children while you shop. There are meter parking lots on this block of Main Street and nearby.
