We love this store! 100% worth visiting. There was a ton of local art and some very unique selections. I can't wait to go back.
They always have incredible options here! I went in looking for one Christmas gift and came out with three! Prices are fair and there are so many quirky, cool products.
Super friendly employees. Taking covid precautions seriously better than I have seen anywhere else. Cute, unique items. Wished prices were better but they are set by the sellers not the store.
Fastidious about Covid precautions if you're concerned about such things and a lovely selection of gifts and decor. Love their prints and local goods!
Always great local gifts and home enhancing items. Worth visiting regularly.
