What does “Double R Gifts” stand for you ask?  Given the train car theme, one would assume that it stands for a rail road crossing or some other reference to the railroad.  However, the real meaning behind the name comes from the founder’s sons, Billy and Ben Rosenberg.  Their late mother’s name was Robin Rosenberg. When their father, Fred Rosenberg, came up with the grand vision that is now Barstow Station someone had to run the main floor gift shop.  That someone was Robin. When the gift shop was first opened, the name was Robin’s Nest.  There was plush items, California souvenirs, gifts of all types, lotions potions, clothing and much, much more for her customers. Robin also made several trips to the Mexican border to fill the store with Mexican pottery.  Today Billy and Ben use a play on words to remember their mother every day.Continuing with their mother’s tradition, if you are looking for the best gifts, souvenirs, candy, snacks, and cards inside Barstow Station, your search is over! Currently Double R Gifts has the best candy and chocolate counter in the desert!  In addition to candy and chocolate, Double R Gifts has a little bit of something for everyone: Route 66, Las Vegas, and California souvenirs, toys, curiosities for kids, collectibles, and so much more! Our retail store is a great source of wonder for the young and the young at heart. And best of all, our store managers will be happy to personally help you in order to make sure that you have an amazing experience. When you're here, you're our valued customer, and we want to keep it that way!So come in and find everything you want and nothing you expected.
