Folsom Mercantile

The Doherty Mercantile, shown at right, closed in the late fifties.  The last store to serve the citizens was the Folsom Supply which closed in the eighties.

You can still buy a coke, a candy bar, and some purty stuff at the Folsom Museum which now occupies the Mercantile building.

       ~ The spirit of the old merchants lives on here! ~

Take some time and browse our online store - we promise the clerk won't follow you around with a suspicious eye.

If you find something you like, we take checks and them new-fangled credit and debit cards.  If you don't find anything you like, we do accept donations!  It's all for a good cause - each item sold benefits the museum, a local crafts person, or both.
