This fantastic shopping venue is located right in the heart of town on the Branson strip. You can spend hours strolling among the shops, visiting with the artists and viewing the goods for sale. You will discover a treasure trove of stores and items such as the Ozark Mountain Bookshop, the custom ironwork at Coyote Run and Sunrise Leatherworks. Check out the wonderful handcrafted marionettes at Mastercraft Puppets, and stop in to eat at Wayne's Gravel Bar Restaurant. While here, be sure to stop in at The Fudgery for some wonderful confections.
We just got back from Branson and use Yahoo travel alot. Before we left we spent some time looking at what other users say about the activities. We say that the Engler Block was highly recommended so we went to see it for ourself. Yes it is exactly like the posts read. More to the point, the place is fantastic. The merchants were so pleasant and the town was not really run over by traffic. We got a chance to see the town without the long lines. Spring is beautiful in Branson and we really enjoyed oour time at Englers. No smoke blowing here.
It was like stepping back into a time where the items made took time and caring. The quality of the workmanship is wonderful to see. The talent to create beautiful objects is always a marvel to behold. Thankyou
Yes I read the other posts so I looked for myself. Awesome shopping and ther is not any junk, it is all upscale. We were there Wednesday and Thursday and the town was slow. Is it always like that this time of year? We went where ever we wanted. We asked the front desk clerk at the Quality Inn where to go to shop and she said Englers. She was right, but we also went by the Tanger and Branson does have good shopping. My hubby even bought some stuff for me for Mothers day and I got it today. It was some real neat artsy pottery from Englers. Cool place.
Read the reviews and went to see the place for myself. I also thought someone was just blowing smoke about the place. The shops just go on and on. It is much bigger than I thought, from seeing it from the street. Very good shops and not the cheap junk that Branson is known for. We have driven by it many times but thought it was just a few shops on the strip. IMHO, the best in Branson. I bought some stained glass, permanent flowers, and a walking cane. This place really is very nice. All you are going to get from me today.
My wife and I were in Branson for our first trip after getting married. We went shopping for some wedding gifts. Folks in our hotel told us to go to the Engler Block for upscale gifts. I know that we are not well off enough to buy all we want to get yet. Howdy, that place has more good stuff than we have even seen. We did buy some custom pottery that Reesa liked. My wife has found a home and I am now going to be broke. I bought a leather hat and a new belt from the lether guy. Thank goodness for the Engler block. Who owns that place?
We made a spring trip to Branson to see the Dogwoods. blossoming trees, take in some shows, and go shopping (again). Went back to Englers to see what was new. They have a new scrimshaw (sp) artist that carves moose antlers. That is something we had not seen. There are more craftsmen this year than in years past. The problem wit the Engler block is that there is just not enough time. When all of the artists are demonstrating the stuff it is just so interesting. I do not know where they get all of the craftsmen, but there is not anywhere else to see all of it, outside of Silver Dollar City. The place is just cool.
After reading a few posts on this Engler Block, when we went to Branson I just wanted to see if these posts were truthful. You know how folks get on these sites and just blow smoke. All I can say is that the posts were not fully descriptive of this place. I just have not seen anything like it. I am not a wordsmith so all I can say is wow. The kids even liked the place and that is saying something. I do know where some of the Christmas presents will be bought. No smoke blowing here, the Engler Block is just very nice.
Went to Engler Block this past weekend while the kids were on Spring break. There were alot of people in town almost like summer. We asked the hotel clerk about fun shopping and not junk. She sent us to this mall and she was right. I read some of the other columns on this place and they were right except one thing. That place is big and it takes forever to get to all of the shops. You need alot of time and leave the kids and husband at the hotel. They cost me alot of money. Nice place and good people. I am going back without my family so I can shop in peace.
Leonard and I have never been to a place with so much diversity. I read some of these postings but none really touch on the matter on how diverse this shopping is. It looks so much smaller from the front but there are about 25 shops and probably 45,000 sq ft of arts and fine crafts. This stuff is not what you see in Flea markets and my hotel clerk did not even know where the place was. We had to call the office and get directions. People, this place is nice, and words do not express how nice it is. Go see for yourself or go to their website. The clerk wanted to send us to a flea market, go figure.
They are working on rebuilding the floors in the center, There were only about 5 or shops open today and they were putting in a new hardwood floor in the middle of the place. Some musicians were jamming in the woodcarving area playing bluegrass music. Heck these guys were better than what we paid to see. There is not another place anywhere like this one. Tood bad the whole mall is not open until Tuesday.
