Coon Ridge Novelty Shop

Distinctive souvenirs were produced in the Shepherd of the Hills Country and sold at roadside curio and gift shops like Coon Ridge Novelty Shop in Reeds Springs. 

This shop was owned by John and Mrs. Wallace. She was a teacher at the Crane school. 

The shops were stocked with locally-made baskets, wood carvings, wares made of cedar, Harold Horine’s colorful drip-glaze concrete pots, and chenille spreads brought in from the southeastern United States.

Some of those once-inexpensive souvenirs now fetch many times their original price.
