You really need to stop in to see the variety of products available at the shop. Here are some of the kinds of things you can find, but there are many that just don’t fit into any category!
Look Good with Accessories and Jewelry
We carry all kinds of great accessories to make you look good. We have unusual and stylish umbrellas, all kinds of customer scarves and caps, and great sunglasses and readers. Of course we have a wide variety of jewelry styles (and are always adding more!). We feature current designs and trends, some vintage pieces, as well as hand-made jewelry from a number of local artists. From delicate to chunky and funky- we have it all! At our customers’ request, we have added children’s jewelry, non-pierced earrings, and a large offering of bracelets that don’t have to be clasped. If you don’t see what you want, we will work with our local artists to create just the right piece for you or as a gift.
Just the Good Cards
We don’t have thousands of cards, we just have good ones! If you are looking for something witty, thoughtful, or sweet, we have it! Borealis, Jumping Cracker Beans, and Chit-Chat are a few of the lines we carry, all reasonably priced.
Food and Entertaining
Let’s talk about candy! We carry several brands most made locally. Check out what you will find from Lorah’s Candies, Intermezzo by Stephanie, C.B. Stuffer, and Jubilee Gourmet. Please read and comment on our Candy discussion page. We offer Gourmet du Village, which is a great line of dip mixes, drink mixes, interesting salts and herb mixes, brie toppers, chutneys, mustards, and many other fantastic but easy food items, especially suited for entertaining. These products make perfect gifts, but can also make you look like a really gourmet foodie to your own guests! They would never guess how easy it is to prepare and serve impressive dishes in the beautiful, classic-design cooking and presentation pieces. We love to talk about food – come in and find something unusual for a hostess gift or your next party.
Fashion – Clothing and Accessories
Check out our hats, sweaters, vests, sunglasses, readers, and many other accessories. We love scarves, of every color and design. You really should take a look at our purses, which are often one-of-a-kind and are always great style pieces. And we have products made locally that are in the store or we can work with you to create just what you are looking for (check out just some listed on the left).
Entertaining with Style
We carry all kinds of classic and trendy items to make entertaining easy and just a little impressive. Cool new slates in several sizes and styles are perfect for serving cheese or other free-standing foods, and the soapstone “chalk” sticks make it easy to identify what’s on the menu. Innovative cheese knives make it possible to serve thin slices of cheese without crumbling or sticking to the knife. Chilled offerings can be presented on gorgeous hunks of granite that have been refrigerated to maintain a perfect serving temp. Speaking of chilled, new wine corks have a frozen rod that cools a wine bottle in minutes, and keeps it cold for hours. Beer bands keep your brew cold. And we have lots of fun entertainment party supplies like napkins and other essentials. Hand-painted glassware is available in any design to express your interests. Are you starting to get the idea?
We have some home décor items that fit many homes. Bigger items like mirrors, lamps, and framed photos and art – and also smaller items. For example, we have a wide selection of flameless candles from Candle Impressions—scented or not, colored or cream—that come in all different sizes—votives, tapers, tealights, and pillars in many sizes! Create beautiful ambiance without the fear of a child or pet knocking a candle over. We also have lots of fun things the might be a little unique just for you – like pillows with your favorite pet, a fun windchime of fishbones or a realistic bird that moves naturally in the breeze on your porch. And like our other products we have local artist excited to help you create just the right piece – hand painted furniture. So whether you are looking for classic or quirky, common or custom – stop in and talk with us about your home décor.
