The owner, Michelle Fields has the most wonderful shop full of antiques, gifts, and the hidden surprise of a small upholstery shop. Her Christmas room and outdoor enclosed porch will provide you with many hours of browsing and treasures not found anywhere else in our area. Another fun room is the kitchen filled with memories of our mother's era that welcomes you with her most eclectic taste in dishes and other household items. Michelle has an exciting collection of vintage clothing including hats, jewelry and ladies hankies. Her Christmas room will take you back to a bygone time of old toys, precious boxed ornaments, and surprises for everyone.
