We stopped in to see what was offered in this shop. There were lots of offerings that we had not seen nor were familiar with as they were local to the area. Such a great place to look around and browse.

Neat little shop. Quaint and cozy and tucked out of the way. We truly wanted to find something to buy, but no luck this time. Love the store though!

I ordered my Season's of Mackinac calendar, and not only spoke to a very friendly lady, but also received the calendar very fast. I can't wait to visit this store on my trip to Mackinac Island this summer!
