If you like creaky floors, an old time post office that is actually functioning, a giant pot bellied stove in the middle, then this is your store. I purchased a bottle of soda out of a chilled water bunker type cooler. There is the biggest...More

Cute little store that can fulfill most of your immediate needs, along with some things you want and don't need. The staff is very pleasant too!

Was fun to walk back in time. The quaint working post office, creaky floors and maze of products are a fun distraction. We visited both the original and the newer Boone location. Great souvenir shopping and practical items too.

A great place to visit if you want a blast from the past! They have all the old penny candy that we had when growing up. That also have a great selection on outdoor clothing. The one down the road has great crafts

Not many places do I find shopping to be a joy, but Mast is always one of them. I hate shopping, but have spent an hour in Mast without buying a thing and still had a great time. My wife makes up for it. I...More
