Luttrell’s Five and Dime, located at 27 W. Cowlitz Ave., in Castle Rock, offers shoppers a memorable and nostalgic trip through the past with many vintage collectibles.
A Castle Rock couple has opened a brand new shopping experience downtown, with the hope of sharing their appreciation for relics of the past.
Todd and Pam Luttrell opened Luttrell’s Five and Dime in April and say the public is welcome to look through the many collectibles on display.
“We’ve always collected vintage items,” said Todd Luttrell, stating much of the inventory has come from their personal collection acquired over the years. “It’s just kind of a passion for us.”
“We’re very eclectic,” said Pam Luttrell, who said they had recently moved to Washington from California because her sister lives in the state, and eventually settled on Castle Rock.
“It’s just a cool community,” added Todd Luttrell.
Available within the shop is an assortment of old books, magazines, dolls, lighting fixtures, ceramics, and near about anything capable of dazzling the imagination and bringing back old memories.
Todd Luttrell said it is not uncommon for older residents to just enjoy coming through and viewing many of the items they grew up with, stating, “It puts a smile on their face.”
One emphasis the Luttrells say they have placed on their business is that it is meant for small-town community members rather than just collectors from Seattle and Portland.
“We try to price everything in here really reasonable,” he said, stating the goal is for shoppers to simply enjoy themselves.
To see the items available at Luttrell’s Five and Dime, visit their location at 27 W. Cowlitz Ave. or call (360) 967-2150. Their inventory changes regularly, so be sure to drop by and see what’s new.
