We have visited Creede and Rare Things a couple of times. Very unique items. Beautiful horsehair jewelry and stones set by owner Jennifer Inge. Manager Nanci Beazley knows the artists and all the sources. Don't miss this amazing shopping adventure!

Wow, this place is amazing. I love antiques and Native American jewelry which is displayed beautifully. Had trouble deciding, but found a few treasures. If you're in Creede, don't miss it.

I usually do some people watching while my wife shops in Creede, but I always enjoy this store. Probably the fossil collections are the attention getter, but once inside there are many interesting and quality items to peruse. Well worth a look.

If you are looking for a keepsake of your trip to the mountains, but you want something beyond the normal souvenirs, this is your shop. Don't be in a hurry or you might miss something.

This is an interesting store with friendly and helpful staff and unique local products. They had a really neat xylophone-type of wind chime with a mallet that I'd never seen anywhere before. Prices seem reasonable.

Nice to place to browse while in Creede. Plenty of unique items for the artistic home decorator and more. Had a chance to chat with a friendly salesperson who explained where the owner gets the pieces displayed and sold in the store. The salesperson (should...More
