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!".

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!

Thanks,

Dave and friends.
