  • An opportunity to learn a bit about Memphis, Southern Folklore....and a chance to take a bit of that home with you (local art pieces, posters, shirts, etc.)
  • A nice place to visit and spend some time to check out what they have. Really make a point to spend some time w/the owner. She has a lot of history stored up in her brains. She has a lot of info to share when u approach her.
