General Mercantile and Oldtime String Shop

 
 

The building which houses the General Mercantile and Oldtime String Shop is located in historical downtown Nacogdoches, Texas and is over 100 years old. It was once the site of Stone's Cafe, where Bonnie Parker worked before joining up with Clyde Barrow. Steve has operated the Oldtime String Shop out of the building since 1978, and has always had a love for the older ways of life. After finding out that the building was also formerly a general store, he and Sheryl decided to continue the tradition and run an old-fashioned general store sometime after 1990. Since that time they have sought to carry a variety of old time merchandise ranging from acoustic musical instruments and accessories to housewares, toys, and clothing.
