I was about to purchase a beautiful mermaid painting, and when I started asking about the artist and telling the lady about our Florida home and Weeki Wachee, I changed my mind. She couldn't stand still to talk to me, looked me up and down...More

We found the merchandise for sale in this store to be high quality, unusual, and creative and the couple at the counter to be helpful and attentive. The store was busy, but they still went out back to find something my friend was looking for....More

Owners are snooty and off-putting. Yes, I am from the Midwest. If you do not like tourists, close shop and do something else, preferably not interacting with public.
