Great shop, has everything you can imagine for bird, butterfly and other garden enthusiasts. Lots of great books for birdwatching. Owls and butterflies are popular at my house and it was hard to leave anything behind!

My husbnd said I could buy anything I wanted for my birthday. I must have spent 1 hour in this store. I come here every time we visit Julian. I bought 3 metal items that are so cute and colorful, two birds and a butterfly.

On an impulse, my girlfriend and I stopped by this fun little shop. Lots of stuff to look through and the staff is friendly and knowledgeable. We found a T-shirt and a coffee mug which will make nice gifts.
