We have done a complete overhaul of our entire upstairs! If you haven't been in lately, you'll be very happily surprised by the new organization of our store. We hope this makes us more appealing to customers and even more easily shop-able. Let us know what you think!

Our front door moved, and our front sign is still in production, so we may not be as easily found as before. Look forward to a new sign out front very soon!
