Shopping (Kevin Arnold photo)
Shopping in Armstrong is a one-of-a-kind experience.
This historic town centre hosts a collection of unusual shops selling everything from kitchen kitsch to cheesecake-lookalike soap. Buy a horse bridle and a retro frock, find a treasure from the past and ask the tarot cards to reveal the future. Venture a little way out of town and discover even more classic collectibles.
The Armstrong General Store is a must browse even for shop-o-phobics. Don't miss the tack room. Think of the conversation starter a salt lick or horseshoe and nails would make as a coffee table souvenir.
Folk art fans drop by Pleasant Valley Quilting. No need to be a needlework artist to enjoy the brilliant colours of the kaleidoscope fabric collection.
