"No shopping trip to the Hardy County area is complete without a stop at the year-old Lost River Trading Post..." - Charleston Gazette, 11/02/14
“...an upscale store that opened...in nearby Wardensville."

"It’s a combo cutting-edge gallery space, made-from-scratch bakery and shopping opportunity for everything from local arts to the largest collection of craft beers...and must-have oddities." - Charleston Gazette, 10/05/14
"Wardensville is probably not what you’d expect, assuming you expected anything. This town of less than 300 people, 100 miles from Washington, D.C., is arguably not on most West Virginians’ radar—but it should be."- WV Living Magazine, 11/01/17
