Just made it to the last hour of the annual sale! Love picking up gifts during this event; especially for our out of town guests! A must for tourists who do not have time to travel to Acrosanti!

Do you mean, can you walk around the display areas with your dog rather then leaving him/her in the car? Well, then I would say yes. Most of the displays are open areas and people just wander about.
