An eclectic collection of artists studios with a definite feel of the 60's. Worth a few minutes of your time and a word or two with the friendly natives.

Strolled through several studios. Unique items and some very talented people. Made a small purchase at PB&J from the friendly owner who explained how some of her wares were made. Her wool-interwoven sharfs were amazing!
