The importance of brick and mortar shops in our local communities impacts not only our industry but our local economies by providing employment for our Team Members, sharing information about other local businesses such as restaurants and other shops as well as having the opportunity to get to know our customers vs. a customer "number" via internet shopping.  YOU are the reason we unlock the door daily.

If you are visiting the area be sure to stop in and ask our Team Members the name of great local restaurants - We've heard that we have not steered anyone wrong yet!

We are open Monday through Friday 9 am - 5 pm and Saturdays 9 am - 3 pm
Face coverings are optional in the shop as well as classes effective May 15, 2021.
