Try to stop by every 6 months or so. A real trip down Memory Lane. Always unique "stuff," reasonably priced. Great place to pick up that "interesting" gift for Mother's Day, birthdays, anniversaries, or just to say "thinking of you."

More than just one charming, it is charming, charming, charming. And very reasonable. Owner, Chris Swihura, has her store stuffed with what she calls "Antiques, Collectables, Eclectibles" Which translates to old, new, and different. I have visited each time I have been in the area...More
