It has amazing hand made beautiful items for purchase! They have items such as blown glass dishes, bowls, vases. They have clothing items that are hand made as well as cards and pottery too. It is definitely a place you want to see!

This is a truly great place to spend time and enjoy history as you walk the halls and imagine the building in its production days and see what it has been repurposed into this great artist and community space.

The GoggleWorks is an amazing artisans working gallery with something for everyone. They have demonstrations, classes, and exhibits to satisfy anyone's taste. Also, there is a movie theater that plays avant garde features.
