No public washroom which would be nice to have. Art is nice but very expensive. Staff are friendly. Keep driving and you will find items for cheaper.

This store had artistic flair. It almost looked like a museum. They had lots to offer: pottery, quilts. Jewelry, frames, weaving and wooden items. The owner was very nice and enjoyed talking with us. I enjoy stores like these. Worthwhile to visit.

The owner of this shop has a keen eye for quality workmanship. No kitsch here. Lots of pottery, hand-woven goods, and attractive original sketches/paintings. Prices are not cheap, but given the quality they seem justified.

Not a souvenir shop...whew. Great array of quilts, pottery, wood craft, jewelry, paintings, and some good knitting.

The art and craft products were tastefully displayed and the prices were clearly marked. All the work is made locally. Shipping is also provided if needed.

You will find here mostly chunky pottery (versus fine, delicate pottery). There are some quilts upstairs and some other interesting unique local arts and crafts. I purchased a lovely wool felt hat and a unique woolen scarf.
