  • The Fantastic Umbrella Factory has a sixties vibe. Just smell the patchouli, and shop the tie-dye clothing. The shops have an eclectic mix of items for sale, and the grounds are enjoyable to stroll, i...  more »
  • Really has become more of a summer tourist trap (and I say that in a good way...the tourists need to spend their money somewhere locally!) than anything else. Maybe a few nice little jewelry vendors.  more »

  • This place is awsome I always have a great time but... the best spot in the entire umbrella factory is the henna tent the henna is beautiful
  • Stopped by for lunch at Small Axe Cafe now that it's reopened by new people. Had a Veggie Reuben and Smaxe salad and they were delicious! Love the crew and menu is great. Can't wait to go back.
  • This is a great place to spend an afternoon meandering through the property, exploring. They have several unique shops which have some great goodies. Some stores were not my cup of tea but was still fun to look around! The animals were fun to watch and interact with (goats, chickens and emus). Our favorite was the bamboo field in the back. I'm looking forward to coming back in the spring when I'm sure there are flowers around!
  • Fun family place! Great selections of artistry and folk art and nice jewelry. Stroll thru gardens, grab a bite to eat, good coffee and tea, very relaxing, pleasant place to visit.
  • Such a cool hangout. Bamboo forest, eclectic art, fresh air and you can feed the animals.
