Mountain Craft Shop Co.

Proctor, WV

Mountain Craft Shop Co. is in it's 55th year of the most fun business. Come and play with fun toys from the past.

Our products, collectively known as American Folk Toys, are reproductions of toys once made at home and handed down from one generation to another. Most of our toys are made of native hardwoods, such as poplar, walnut, cherry, beech, or maple. The toy names may sound strange like our WhimmyDiddle and FlipperDinger, but they are the traditional names from years past. We also use local products such as the marbles in many of our items (Musical Marble Tree, Marble Chute, TicTacToe) are made in Paden City, WV at the Marble King factory. Marble King is one of the last remaining marble factories in North America.

At our woodshop, folks can see us take logs and twigs and change them into toys. The shop is in the old Grandview School, now home of ThistleDew Farm, where you can also shop for honey and beeswax products. Both educational and fun, this is an excellent family adventure and experience!

We are open Monday through Friday, 9 to 4, and some weekends from Noon to 3pm. Please visit, but do call ahead.
