I love this place. It has everything you need. Friendly staff too! It’s like a better, more local Target. As for the prices? I’m willing to pay 50 extra cents to support a local business any day. It really isn’t that much more expensive than what you’d find at conglomerate store.

I love this place. I have been shopping here for over 20 years. They have things you simply cannot find at other stores. The staff is knowledgeable and helpful, something you will never experience going to a big box store. I especially love this place during holidays. You can find decorations here you can't even find online. I drive over 30 minutes one way just to come here.
