Like many ?49ers, Samuel and Elias Weller soon quit mining and turned to less exhausting work. The Weller brothers operated two stores in town; one was primarily a tin shop. The brick buildings were called Coloma's first fireproof structures. Their first store was known as "The Old Stand" with the "Sign of the large Coffee Pot." Both of the Weller's Stores supplied the town with hardware, firearms, and cooking utensils. By 1855 the Wellers had added stoves, furniture, crockery, china and glassware. All items were advertised to be sold at small profits, and home deliveries were made at no charge.
