The shop had a great variety of items that differed from the traditional tourist shops. True artists own and operate the store. If you are looking for a locally made piece of art, this is a must stop.

Glad I'd read about this shop. Instantly knew I could fill boxes with art from here. Jewelry, local bird decoys, paintings, useful art as serving dishes. Will have to go back with a list. Great source for gifts for yourself and others.

We focused mostly on pottery and different forms of paintings and photography. Work is by local people. It is very good, especially considering the size of the town.
