  • Only wish I had a bigger car... There is some excellent craftsmanship in this place. They sell woodworking items from very cheap gag gifts to very nice ceder chests to chairs and tables to sailboats with wooden sails. Worth the stop just to see. I have stopped every time I get close for years.
  • A very cool store with a range in design and price. Lots of options in every price bracket. Cool games, cedar fresheners, art work, chairs, tables, so much variety. I love what this store supports and I like that it has the potential to get parolees into the workforce with skills so they don't easily go back into prison again. We will be back to shop! The customer service was fantastic too, very polite and helpful.
