Nice store/gallery with all sorts of lovely items--from jewelry to wood items to paintings. Staff person seemed knowledgeable about the artists represented. Worth a visit if you are going that way. Quality items for sale, but expensive.

Great shop filled with local artist's work. Friendly staff, very knowledgable about all items in the shop. Terrific collection. And located in the heart of adorable Bear River. A must see when driving through.

Beautiful collection of artworks. The owner is an artist who paints on rocks and his own work is amazing, too. Great if you need a unique gift.
