Hi! Thanks for stopping by The Treasure Shop.
My name is Peggy (McBride) Dart. My parents, Tom & Betty McBride, restored the building and opened The Treasure Shop in 1982. The Treasure Shop was the first gift shop in Jim Thorpe! My sisters and I worked here throughout high school and college. When my parents bought The Old Jail Museum in 1992, I purchased The Treasure Shop.
My two sons, Blaine & Blake, came to work with me everyday after they were born. They both grew up sitting on a stool behind the counter & chatting with customers. They would dust and help put merchandise out. Both boys could ring up sales & make change by the time they were 12. Neither of my sons wants to follow my footsteps and have a career in the shop. Blaine is currently taking Criminal Justice classes and his dream is to be either a state trooper or FBI agent. Blake's goal is to be either a K9 Cop or a Vet. The experience they both learned here is invaluable & I thank every customer who has supported our small family business, talked to my sons while shopping, & watched my boys grow up. We are blessed more than words can express.
We are a small family business that prides ourselves on quality merchandise and friendly customer service. We carry a large selection of items either Made in USA or Ireland. Somedays you will find either Blaine or Blake still helping out.
There are links at the bottom of the page for the Jewelry Manufactures in Ireland from which we have been dealing with for many years. If you see something on their site, ask us for a quote, and we will try to beat their price!
Thanks so much for stopping by The Treasure Shop! If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask. We are thankful for your business:)
Here is a picture of what our building looked like when my parent's purchased in around 1981.
