Wonderful little store with so many original and unique treasures. Love the ladies at the store everyone is so friendly. If you see something you like but would like it a little different , you can touch base with the masterminds behind the work and they are more than happy to customize something especially for you......... you can’t get that at a department or retail store !!!!!!

They’ve done a good job with this business. It’s a cross between a craft mall and vintage decorating store. Things are set up in booths and a few of them are very popular. There is a lot of merchandise for the farmhouse style. I’ve used some of their paints and supplies to redo some furniture. They are very helpful with tips and suggestions to help you have a good outcome. I also like to walk through the back to look at furniture that’s for sale for the purpose of refurbishing. This fun place is worth a visit if you haven’t already been there.

I was really disappointed with this place, I thought it would be something more of unique antiques and handmade items but everything I saw there was what I had seen months before at other more popular and friendly stores, and theres just stuff put out, not really any kind of signature style. This was the second time I had been, used to be much more unique and less everything already seen. What is getting my 1 star review more so however is the fact that they seem to be blatantly bragging about gathering up all of the popular rae dunn pieces in the area and reselling for higher prices. These pieces are (for the mugs) 3.99 at any TJ Maxx , homegoods etc.. store but how can I buy them there where they are supposed to be, when these people are gobbling them up for resale?? Really bad business practice. Also have seen the popular "fresh baked pies" sign there that is ($11.99) at world market, as well as hobby lobby items. Im sure these aren't the only pieces that they are grabbing at cost to resell to us . Buyer do yourself a favor and shop online, your probably getting "had " if you buy here. ***Updating to state that the Martha person keeps trying to flag my review on here, I guess they really dont want anyone to know they do this.

What makes this little 'shoppery' unique is that nothing is ever the same! Except! for top quality hand-made items, great personal assistance with decorating styles, and a flair for the unusual, comfortable, and relaxed shopping atmosphere. If something catches your eye - and you REALLY love it - you better hop on it as the next person in may feel the same way and it won't be there if you return. Many are truly 'one of a kind' items, and each vendor/booth has a rotating/revolving inventory from jewelry, health/beauty items, rustic/primitive, Victorian, Country Farmhouse, and some are just plain 'old' and in need of a loving home - like yours! On occasion they have classes on painting your own piece of furniture - a chair, chest, table that needs a 'face lift' or a complete makeover and they carry a full line of Chalk type paints, glazes, stains as well as brushes and other tools. It's just too much fun!! I can't leave without SOMETHING! From a one of a kind little drawer pull, to an old butter churn, to jewelry for my friends - Great parking too - easy in/out, and room to turn around! IF we had 'public transportation' it would be accessible - but we don't have a bus line anymore, but I think we have driver services - like 'UBER' maybe ... Depending on where you live, you could walk, ride a bike! In response to the questions about Transportation! And it's 'Handicap' friendly - easy entry, moving thru the shop -
