Thanks to the community’s generosity, our store is getting fuller and fuller by the day. We have loads of wonderful merchandise for you to sort through and check out! Our space is very limited and crowded, so for the summer months we will be implementing a CASH and CARRY policy. We will be unable to put a “hold” on any items for customers. We encourage you to come in and shop our sales, and make sure to bring enough cash with you to purchase your new treasures!!
