Great Old Timey Place, LOVE the Candy Store!

This is a great place to get lost in time. It brings you back to a more simple, relaxed time & the atmosphere is just perfect.

This is one of those "must do's" when we visit Boone. They have everything from old fashioned candy to cast iron pots to Merrell hiking boots! There's also a variety of food goods, such as grits, jams, salsas and such. I love their apple cider vinaigrette and always stock up on that when I visit! Will definitely be back!

You'll find a lot of interesting items that you probably wouldn't be able to find elsewhere. It's a nice place to go and walk around, even if just to see all of the unique items for sale. My husband and I found the items a bit expensive, but we are budget travelers so perhaps that's not saying much! They do... More

We visited Mast General Store in Boone this afternoon. It has a rustic and charming atmosphere and is quite large. There are two floors. The bottom was complete with lots of clothes, including Vineyard Vines, adorable raincoats, and flannel pajamas. There was barrels of every and any candy, and there were lots of novelty items specific to Boone and North... More

We are staying in Banner Elk and had an afternoon to drive to Boone for a break from skiing - the Mast Store was on our must do list and it was worth the stop. Not special enough if you aren't planning to walk around the downtown because it's still just a store but theres a lot packed inside that... More

They had a great Labor Day sale that was extended to a back parking area. We found some great buys to take on our trip to Iceland One sales person saw that the line to check out was long and so he personally walked us inside to get checked out. He was very nice. Everybody is so helpful and nice.

This shop has been in Boone for a long time although it is not the original it is still great. It has a little of everything for everyone including children. They have a candy room with new and old candy you can purchase by the pound, clothing, shoes, camping equipment and housewares. Truly a treasure.
