Nothing unique. Some cute things but.... Very unfriendly staff, no hello, no may I help you and no thank you after buying a small item. If you are into cookie cutters they had a good amount.

This is a real old curiosity shop, a bit of everything. We stop in when we're in town partly to buy a couple things here and there and partly to chat to the very interesting German/American gentleman who owns the store.
