We stopped in to pick up some rental DVD's. My son always has to look around at the amazing selection of knick knacks, toys, and t-shirts they have. They have something for just about everyone.

A most comprehensive local store with lovely display, almost everything you actually see in a country store is here with its nice array of presentation from color pencils to your personal favorites. A beautiful nest to visit.
