  • Love the art here. Really recommend finding this off-the-beaten-path place.
  • A hidden gem with high end and handmade art and gifts. Would love more variety and Range of prices. They don't advertise much.
  • We've been to several very nice craft shows here.
  • Take classes here. The building gives off a heavy 70's vibe which is pretty cool. Once tried to go into a craft fair in here. Had to pay $5 just to look at stuff let alone buy it.
  • A unique place yo shop and support a good cause. Craft fair doesn't do this place justice, it's more like an artisan shop. Wheelchairs can fit, but some rooms aren't accessible.
