We love this spot for good finds along the trip. The staff is helpful and this year they assisted in mailing a clock back to Oregon. I always find a treasure here.

I wanted to take home every item in this store. My most-coveted item is the ice cooler (large) in the shape of a VW bug - a red! Handcrafted jewelry, decorative items, furniture and art pieces make this as much a museum as a shop....More

This is not an inexpensive gallery store. Things were nicely displayed and very visibly. There was no pressure to buy. There was not much "out of the ordinary" in terms of paintings, jewelry, art work. I was hoping for a bit more creativity or quirkiness.
