  • This store is really worth stopping while on Beale Street. Their milkshakes (huge variety) are so delicious and the sandwiches are also really good. All offered for reasonable prices.  more »
  • When I was a little girl, my mother bought me my first stuffed animal here. The tag said “Please take me I’m lonesome.” I named him George.  more »
  • This is a must stop when on Beale Street. Great three story general store with everything from souvenirs, to spices and sauces, to musical instruments, clothing. They have an old fashioned soda fountain where you can get ice cream and beer! Really fun store. Super friendly staff. So friendly, I'm giving them 5 stars even though they were out of whipcream for my hot fudge sundae.
  • Excellent general store with a very wide selection of products! Loved the attached milkshake/soda bar. A variety of gifts, trinkets, and accessories for anybody! Handmade items from all types of independent vendors.
