Downtown Spooner Business Highlight
Yellow River Trading Company is the newest variety store on Spooner’s main street.
Harkening back to the old five and dime era, this family run business has a little bit of everything. Stroll the many aisles at your leisure while listening to big band music from the ’40’s. You’ll find something for everyone.
- clothing, hats, scarves and purses
- home decor such as battery-powered candles, all types of containers, rugs, artwork, alpine trees, florals, light strings year round and even bedding.
- one of the best soy candles; made in the US, by the 1803 candle company, as well as melts, room sprays and scented oils.
- the crafter or hobbyist, knitter/crocheter, painter or sewer/quilter will all find lots of supplies at affordable prices
If you can’t find what you want in their in-stock merchandise, they are happy to special order for you from the large selections available from their suppliers.
Stroll a little further and you’ll find the owner’s antiques & collectibles for sale as well as pieces of refinished or refurbished furniture.
In the back of the store you will find the Buffalo Room; with one of the largest gun selections in the area as well as the accessories to go with it, all at competitive prices.
The owner’s grandson, Jacob, is as knowledgeable as they come, so he can help you find just the right piece to fit your needs or wants. They carry new and used firearms and can order most makes in an incredibly short turn around time. There is a transfer fee of $25 for both handguns and long guns.
“We’ve already built a strong base of customers we consider family, that come back time and time again. They tell us we’re their new favorite store! We feel humbled and grateful to have this opportunity to fill a need in the community. We hope to see you soon 🙂 ”
