We enjoyed our excursion to this unique little town. The art galleries were beautiful and the shop owners so friendly. We especially enjoyed chatting with the owner of the ukulele shop.

We loved our visit to the village. We particularly enjoyed Shelley Maudsley's gallery. Her paintings are so vibrant and stunning. She was very friendly to us and clearly enjoys talking about her art and processes.

A quiet little artist colony, shops offer all kinds of art with a wide appeal. Make a morning or afternoon of it and find everything from handmade glass jewelry to paintings for your walls.
