The store is located at 211 N. Main St. "I love going in and just browsing," writes David Karl, an avid fan who quotes the store's motto, "we travel the globe so you don't have to."
"Everything is just so cool," he writes. "It's sort of like a natural history and art museum" in one.
Alan Freedman moved the store from Plymouth to N. Main's 300 block in 1993, and to its current location in 2009. Along with jewelry, rocks, minerals, and fossils, the store sells gifts that, in the words of its website, combine "nature's beauty with the artistry of skilled craftsmen."
