So the shops are really fun. Postcards are 10 cents each, or 12 for $1. Pay separate for the postcards, that's how they do it. Items are a mix - stuff from NC and SC like candy, lots of kids toys, and Mexican imported items,...More

Very strange setting of stores and shops. It's a nice break from the road to check out some quirky stuff, and to find some touristy deals.

So many funny things in here and quirky gifts. We spent under $10 and left with 2 happy kids. 2 hours later, they are still playing with their alligator pinchers!

Why anyone would even stop in this place, I dont know. There is nothing in this place that that makes you want to buy anything, unless you are looking for cheap, overpriced souvenirs. Dont waste your time stopping here.
