This is cute shopping experience. They have turned a former school into a cute little shopping experience. Antiques and small businesses make the experience a joyful one.

This building used to be a school for many years. The owners do a very good job keeping new items, seasonal decorations and entertainment. They have recently opened a restaurant, the food is delicious.
