REMINDER - WE ARE OPEN THIS
We are open this Saturday, June
15th, from 10:00am-4:00pm. We look forward to seeing you!
16 is Father's Day, so come into the Shop and find that perfect
gift for Dad. Whether he is the outdoor type or the studious type,
you can find something that will "speak" to him. Cufflinks,
a ring or bracelet, a key ring or a money clip might be just what Dad
needs. The whimsy of folk art or a carving might bring a smile to
Dad's face; or, maybe Dad would just want to have a piece of pottery
to add to his collection, like a happy frog storyteller with little
frogs gathered around listening to stories about his childhood.
Stop in and see what might bring a smile to Dad's face
this Father's Day. And, don't forget, to help you with those last
minute gifts, we are open Saturday, June 15.

clothing with flowers adorning the fabric. Bats and bees appear in
carvings. Baskets made from plants that are pollinated can be in the
shape of berries, plates, vases or bowls; we have a full-size Apache
