“Great store – Just like the old times.”

At last, after much thought and analysis, we have decided to re-arrange our website and discontinue the shopping cart ability for online purchasing.  Those of you who know us, shop with us, and have been long time supporters of Kaffie-Frederick, are aware of our desire to provide personal service with undivided attention toward you. With this change, we will be able to show more products and inventory on our website without the constant price, shipping, and general information maintenance that is necessary with a shopping cart site.  We will strive to show as many different product categories as possible.  Most of this work will be performed by me, Luke Frederick, and I will do my best to show our broad ability to access all types of unique, old time, modern, and "hard to find" items.
I encourage you to call our toll-free number - 1-877-865-6681 - and let our staff do everything possible to help you with your needs.  I look forward to this new chapter in the rich history of Kaffie-Frederick.  We want to serve you...we've been doing it for 148 years...on Front historic downtown Natchitoches.

Front Street Project


The long awaited Front Street Rehab project will begin next week. Our local customers are reminded that we have lots of parking on the side and in back of the store. Use our side door, or if you want, walk around front and see how the brick rehab is going. Visitors to Downtown are welcome to park in our rear parking lot while shopping in Kaffie-Frederick. We are glad you came to spent the day or weekend in Natchitoches. Don't miss Louisiana's oldest general store...Kaffie-Frederick...on Front Street.
