We enjoyed viewing the art created by the local artists. We spent about 10 minutes in the store. The lady behind the counter was not at all engaging though.

We stopped in to see some of the local talent, and we're delighted to spend about 40 minutes in the place. Some of the work was quite beautiful, and the woman working there was charming.
