As if Branson isn’t already nearly perfect, there’s another little-known aspect to it that brings joy to travelers from all over the world: a community of local shops in Branson that are unique to the area! Offering charming tchotchkes, sweet nothings, and a variety of merchandise items you never knew you needed until you saw them on the shelf, these stores will be your new happy places on your dream vacation in Branson!
Dick’s Old Time 5 & 10, 103 Main Street
Yes, much of the merchandise found at Dick’s could probably be found somewhere else, but how often in this day and age do you actually get to visit a five and dime store? Extinct in most places, back in the day these discount stores were the hub of community, offering everything from penny candy to household goods to the latest gossip, and at Dick’s Old Time 5 & 10, not much has changed! Open for over 50 years, the green and black plaid floor tiles lead the way to bargains, treats, and pretty much everything you may have forgotten when packing for your Branson adventure!
Prehistoric Fossils, 101 Veterans Boulevard
Shopping with children can be a bit trying, as they get bored, tired, and even when recently fed, suddenly NEED every piece of candy within sight! A visit to Prehistoric Fossil, however, is guaranteed to be a shopping game changer! Family run—so they understand the special challenges of shopping with children—and offering a stunning selection of gems, minerals, rocks, and of course, fossils, the sight of the painted dinosaurs adorning the building will have your dinosaur loving youngsters crying out with glee. And when you let them purchase a handful of pretty rocks, or even better, a real live fossil, you’ll be shocked at the difference in tone this particular shopping spree will have!
Amish Country Store, 3100 N Gretna Road
Offering another step back into the past, the Amish Country Store may end up being your favorite of all the stores in the area! Working as a small natural grocer, selling foodstuffs and spices that are handmade and all natural, but also selling furnishings and handmade quilts, the horse and buggy statue standing outside let’s you know you have arrived at your destination! Everything in this store is handcrafted with love and enormous amount of skill.
