    Blue Mountain Sports: Very helpful owner

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Geared totally to outdoor sports, Blue Mountain has a small variety of retail items. Good if you forget something. But where they excel is in the rental programs for bikes and shuttle services for kayakers.

    While not the season, I spoke to Tom, the owner. Shuttles for the Lehigh River are $20. Not bad considering the Lehigh is a great river for kayaking.

    Tom was also very helpful with giving local information on what I can see during my short stay. Always nice to meet someone willing to share local information.

    What to buy: If you are interested in biking or hiking in the area, stop in and pick up the local guide book. Costs less then $10.

    A very small shop with country type gifts and decor items for sale. They also sell candles and soap but the selection is very small.

    What to pay: A little more expensive than average, geared toward the tourist.

    The Emporium of Curious Goods: Unique items and wide variety

    by blueskyjohn Updated Apr 22, 2014

    This shop has a wide variety of items. When you first enter, there are a number of fairy type figurines and to the left side seems to be a darker items. In the center you will see a sign directing you to the back of the store if you do not like what you see. It is not a mystical type store. In the back there is a good variety of stained glass lamps and Victorian type decor

    There is no sign on the awning. Only a small sign in a frame hanging in the window.

    What to pay: Everything I checked seemed very reasonably priced.

    Horizons: The Greatful Dead, alive in Jim Thorpe

    If you are a Greatful Dead fan then you will want to stop in this shop. The shop prides itself as a specialty shop for Greatful Dead items but I found it more of a hippie type shop with a wide selection of "smoking" paraphernalia.

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Country Junction of Lehighton

    The Country Junction is a huge country store featuring items that you would normally see in a country store. It was built to cater to tourists. It has a general grocery section. It also has a restaurant area, lumber section, antiques, clothing, home furnishings, and furniture. The thing about this store is that it is bigger than most Wal-Marts

    What to pay: Average prices
