This is always a fun place to stop by when in the area. There is something to interest everyone. We were up here with our kids on a rainy day and stopped in for some cold weather gear and found what we were looking for.

They sell all kinds of high quality items. They have clothing, camping stuff, books, decorative things, and treats. We stop here every time we are in town. The owner is really nice and so are the people that work there.
