We are planning a shopping trip to Arkansas and would appreciate recommendations for areas or places that have reasonable prices on rustic or primitive farm items.

Thanks for any suggestions...

just for the ride and for fun try grand pa`s antique/junk store in kingston,also there is a great mom and pop cafe on the town square across from grand pa`s( breakfast is outstanding) at the junction of 74 and 21 just south of hiway 412 and while your in the area also just off of 412 at osage, there is a pottery shop in a old genral store, well worth the stop (i have a vase) and then you can go down through ponca (see the beautiful buffalo river and hike the lost valley trail and then drive over mt sherman to jasper,
neat little town with some shops there also and then you can toss a coin to see if you go north or south on senic hiway 7. and if you see larry at the ponca genral store tell him hawk says hey!
a day in arkansas is a day in paradise. enjoy

i have known the folks that own the ponca genral store for about 10 years as well as grand pa over the mountain in kingston. and just met the guy who owns the pottery shop in osage a couple of years ago. and there is mary over on hi way 7 at country smoked meats ( which is also worth the stop ). nobody in ozone. and all my folks come from the springtown and cave springs area west of there near springdale. i have been wanting to get down around the cossatot river and in your neck of the woods to see mt magazine and up to a vineyard around paris, but i am a creature of habit and can`t seem to get out of that area when in arkansas.

I love your part of Ark also...you need to come see Mt. MAgazine while the colors are still pretty...I wonder if land is high in Kingston and Ozone>>???KAtG

not sure about ozone but the kingston area should`nt be to bad as long as you stay away from the buffalo river, that area is higher. there is alot of great country between fallsville and oark.
we looked at moving over there a few years ago and it just did`nt work out. not sure if i`ll get to see the leaves this year but i`ll probally take a few days in late winter or early spring.

Smaller out of the way places like Van Buren and Mena have the best stuff. Eureka Springs has a lot of shops but has become too commercialized to suit me. In central Arkansas there are a few flea markets in Pine Bluff that always have something of interest. Lots of antique shops on I-30 east leading into Little Rock around Benton area. Like anything else, ya just gotta get out and look. There is usually a farm equipment auction or two in the Little Rock paper (Arkansas Democrat). Also a big farm auction down at a place called Back Gate farther down in southeast Arkansas.
