All the buses with foreign tourists will stop here and do the shopping tour of Route 66. Obviously the owner has good relationships with travel agencies. The choice is great.

Lots of Route 66 souvenirs and some history of the barber shop. Outside photo ops abound, too. A must stop along old Route 66.

Great must see stop on Route 66. Great family run 3 generations working there. Also a great history lesson from one of the people who started it all in Arizona. All the Route 66 memorabilia is just super!

A must see stop on Route 66, we got to meet 'Angel' and get a photo with him. He is a true gentleman and a great ambassador for Route 66.

Just loved it, nostalgia overload! Angel has worked so hard to keep the legend alive and deserves the coach loads of people arriving daily.

They have a website-route66giftshop. They gave me a card that says to use coupon code-GETYOURKICKS- for 10% off entire online order. Says they ship worldwide— hopes this helps
