We were so disappointed to find this unique little shop no longer occupied by Given Back Bird Houses. The current operator had no information other than to hand me a slip of paper with the web address on it. Too bad, so sad.

This store is owner operated. They hand make wonderful little bird houses and they provide an education on how and when to put them up. Each bird house is unique. They are truly art. Don't miss this terrific little store.
