This is a very unique store with tons of ideas for gifts and garden. You will find things here that you wont find in other places. I have purchased lawn ornaments that were fabricated from old propane tanks. Very cool. A must see.

Always well-treated when I go there. Lots of information provided by staff re- all the items on sale. I took one purchase back and received a full refund. Best place in the area to buy bird feeders and garden items.
