We always stop at Mast General Store when we are in the Boone area. The kids love the candy barrels and old fashioned toys. My husband and I love the hiking, dog, and cooking products. Just a great overall store, with something g for everyone

Thanks for reviewing us, CatherineB882. Mast General Store is an old-timey general store so that's why we are able to offer something for everyone. The candy room is always a favorite! Thanks for describing us as a "treasure". We treasure our customers!

Our kids absolutely LOVED the candy barrels. We have 4 children, so we limited them to 4 pieces of candy each. Paid $27 for 16 single size pieces of candy. Absolutely insane. Cool experience, but make sure you take a 2nd mortgage on your house...More

172vanessa, That does seem a little over-the-top. The Candy Barrel candy is priced by the pound, so I'm not sure how 16 pieces cost that much unless you also had some priced candy in the mix. In addition to the "bulk" candy in the barrels,...More

General Store..................just another Chinese filled merchandise store. Candy best part. Expensive for what is there. Stores in Valle Crusis are original types and interesting to look at. Many other type stores less expensive.More
