The fantastic neon bird outside this purple painted shop always catches your attention! The shop is full of neat finds some of which are vintage as well as clothes and jewelry. Definitely worth a stop to check it out!

I've bought a few vintage medical books from here--I'm pre-med. They're treasures and were very fairly priced! They also have local-made jewelry. I would definitely recommend stopping by sometime.

Out of towners and we had nothing to do that we were aware of so I downloaded TripAdvisor and saw this place. Unusual and eclectic but that's what made it so great!
