Welcome to Dave's Rock Shop, online!
We'll normally process & ship out your order within 1 business day!
*** Please take note ***
After 25 years at the same location, we are moving just across the street, into a much larger facility at 711 Main Street!
This is exciting for us, but of course it unfortunately means we'll need to close both the museum & shop for a short time.
Our museum will temporarily close starting this Monday, March, 16, 2015 and will re-open when renovations are complete.
(We'll keep you posted on the museum's re-opening date, at 711 Main Street.)
Our retail store at 704 Main will close Monday, April 6th through Friday, April 10th. It will then re-open Saturday, April 11th, across the street at 711 Main St, Evanston.
Thank you all for your support! We hope all of you who can make it to our new facility will be as excited about it as we are!
Due to the individuality of our products only a small percentage of our entire inventory is posted online. If you are looking for something and don't see it here, please contact us to inquire. Often, we are able to fill requests via email or over the phone.
As a family owned business for over 40 years in Evanston, Dave's Rock Shop has a great appreciation for our loyal long-time customers, as well as the continuing support of new patrons. We love the excitement of introducing rocks and fossils to a new generation of rockhounds. Our goal is to continue to provide our customers with the highest quality of service, product, and information. Many thanks to you all, and as Dave would say, "Happy Hunting!".

We'd like to wish "Good Luck!" to Energy BBDO! They are a premier global advertising agency that has decided to use Dave's Rock Shop and our specimens & photos to create posters for an advertising campaign contest. We're honored!
Also, the Wall Street Journal did a feature on minerals and they used one of our specimens! Check out the link below to view the article!
Our mission remains the same both in the shop and on online - to offer a wide variety of the most unique, high quality items at a fair price, and to educate our customers to the best of our ability about the items we sell. Stop by often, as we will frequently be updating and adding new things to the site and the shop!
Dave and friends.
