Our shop is open 6 days a week and is stocked with everything you need (or want) for weaving baskets or chair seats. From wire handles to wooden bases, pine needles to Shaker tape, Irish waxed linen to braided seagrass, you'll find almost everything. We also offer our secure online catalog, which is updated every time a product changes. The online catalog shows information and pictures of each one of our products so you can browse and shop even when you can't make it out to Kempton.

Many customers plan their vacations to include a stop at the store. Customers from Alaska and Hawaii have stopped by while in the east visiting relatives. Others find the store handy in their travels from summer to winter homes as it is near major North/South interstate highways. Although located in very rural Albany Township, many attractions and hidden gems are located close by. Hawk Mountain, a world renowned bird and wildlife sanctuary, is only 7 miles away. Kempton has a steam train, the WK&S Railroad that runs a 5 mile round trip on the weekends. The far end of the train ride is the Wanamaker's depot. Wanamaker's General Store is open with everything from groceries, bulk foods, homemade deli sandwiches to live bait and hunting licenses and children's games. Enjoy freshly brewed coffee while you browse locally made crafts and handmade wooden toys, They are open 7-7 weekdays and Saturday 8-6.
If you are interested in the muzzle loading tradition and/or renactments, stop by Dixon's Muzzle Loading shop for supplies, history and much, much more.
If you are planning to stay a while, there are several B&B's close by: Blue Mountain Summit Restaurant and Bed & Breakfast, Pamela's Forget-Me-Not Guest House 35 Hawk Mountain Road Kempton PA 19529. 610-756-3398 (leave message),, (5 min. away: suites, rooms and private cottage with Jacuzzi) and Hawk Mountain B&B (for more, request an Accommodations & Attractions list).
The Reading shopping outlets, Dorney Park & Wildwater Kingdom, Philadelphia, and many PA Dutch attractions are also close by. In fact, New York City is less than a 2 hour drive. Please let us know if you are coming for a visit and would like a list of B & B's, restaurants, campgrounds, things to do and see and hotels in our area.
