Our Story

Wooden Nickel has been an established retail fixture in the Stillwater community since 1976. The shop tells a story of our authentic brand the moment you walk through the navy doors. A sense of comfort and excitement will overcome you as you take it all in. We have a little something for almost everyone. Our top priority is to make you feel confident, knowing that our employees have your needs in mind.  Whether you are shopping for a special occasion, the perfect gift, or just need some retail therapy, we are happy to help and provide the best quality and service. 

For nearly 40 years, The Wooden Nickel operated on Knoblock, across from The Hideaway. In 2015 a devastating fire destroyed our inventory. Seeing the opportunity in this adversity to expand her business and invest in the Stillwater community, Allison moved Wooden Nickel to its current location on Washington Street. We are so proud of our new location and love our new home on “The Strip''. We have been able to expand our inventory and design a space we know you will enjoy.

Wooden Nickel would like to thank Stillwater for shopping locally and for visiting our site.  Without our customers, we would not be able to give back to the community.  We have a great sense of pride in our town and feel honored to have a small part in the local lifestyle.
