Old Stone House Gift Shop Reviews
Parking is very easy with the house being located within walking distance of the Fayette street parking lot. The house is beautiful and has a sign just outside giving the history of the house. The interior is very full, but not over the top. All of the merchandise is organized very pleasantly, with a lot of it gathered together by like colors. A large variety of good items for gifts and items for around your own home. The two ladies on staff were very friendly and helpful as soon as we walked in the door. Prices were not bad either, for the quality you're getting.
I love the Old Stone House! The volunteer employees are always so kind & helpful! It's a great place to buy a gift for someone or something for yourself! They have an awesome wooden WV ornament I like to buy as a gift for friends. Plus, they donate to charities! Amazing!
