Unique gift items and good ice cream. We loved the insects and animals in the front of the store. Worth a stop for sure

If you're going to the Santa Claus house, you might as well visit this place too. It was a short drive away. When I was first told about this place I thought it was a place selling knots (ie those you make out of string),...More

This is just one of those great places that you just have to visit. Lots of great items made from burls. Spend 5 minutes or 50 minutes. Friendly staff. I just can't drive by without stopping.
