This was a really neat, unique store that benefited the people of Slovakia with their handmade crafts. Unfortunately the store has closed for good due to the dollar value between the U.S. And Slovakia.

Charming shop and show room which was shared with the former temporary digs of the Wendell August store while it was building its new facility across the road. These products are charming AND THE HAND CARVED MECHANICAL wood display is huge and amazing. They closed down sadly and didn't know where or if they would relocated when I was there... More

This shop is closed, and it appears to be so permanently. There are however, signs and ads in local magazines which haven't been updated. I wasted about 30 minutes looking until I realized the situation.

The hand carved wooden panorama they had in this place was really cool. They also had a good deal of hand made one of a kind craft items. Unfortunately we drove past there just the other day and it was closed. It may not have received enough business after Wendell August Forge, which was temporarily in the front of the... More

There is an amazing wooden city, hand carved, that is definitely worth seeing. They also have handmade crafts and Polish Pottery. They are very friendly and are proud to show their wares. Some of the gifts are very unique.

Thank you to all who visited and supported this endeavor over the years. It was an amazing place to visit, shop and learn about the Slovak... More

Animated wood carving of the nativity is a must see. The owner of the Slovak store had this created by Slovakian artisan several years ago. There is probably nothing like it anywhere in United States One of the best selections a Polish pottery in the state

This shop was very disappointing. Their brochure and website brag about the mission to help the unemployed from Slovakia. The animated wood carving is impressive,  but there is very little craft wise from Slovakia. Most is Polish, Czech, etc. No dolls, blankets, walking sticks, or crafts. The little they did have I can buy from Amazon. The woman working there... More
