Visited this store today to pick up early Christmas gifts. Always a treat to see what Gail is carrying on inventory. This place is a hidden treasure in Decorah, and yet is conveniently located next to the Hotel Winneshiek.

With a combination of the art of about (50) artists from painting, pottery, jewelry, sculptures, glass, and so much more you have to check this place out! Upscale. Friendly owner and staff. Unusual, high end pieces. We wanted almost everything! :)

This is a very unique store with jewelry, prints, hand made and painted furniture, Story People prints and more. It is a bit pricey but inexpensive gifts are also available. The merchandise is so unique and very unusual and you will not be disappointed.
