We will be closed this Saturday and won't be back until Tuesday when we return to normal business hours. Please message us if you were planning a visit to the store and we can try our best to accommodate you during another time/day.
DAD UPDATE: My dad's stroke recovery is very slowly progressing but we still have miles to go. He has regained some movement in his right side and can walk with a walker or cane for short distances, and has limited use of his right arm and hand. His therapy is winding down and he only has a few sessions left. The brain continues to heal itself for up to TWO years after any brain trauma, so we are praying that he continues to mend. Thank you all for your continued support and understanding through this process. I hope none of you ever have to witness a family member or friend go through this. For those of you who have had that unfortunate experience, I really appreciate your empathy.
Shop hours will continue to be erratic as I care for my dad.
As many of you may know by now, my dad had a stroke a little over a month and a half ago. The stroke impacted his right side motor functions and left him partially paralyzed. Every day his movement has small improvements but it will be a very long road back to him being able to move independently again. I am continuing to care for him and take him to therapy and doctor's appointments so this may impact the hours I am at the shop. Please continue to call ahead before making a trip out to the store. Updates on store hour changes and closures can be found on both my facebook and Instagram pages, for easy access.
I thank you all for your patience and understanding as we get through this. I pray for my dad's quick recovery and increased mobility.
We will be CLOSED Tuesday May 18th.
Please call ahead before coming this week. My father suffered a stroke this week and with so much uncertainty I am unable to fulfill obligations to the shop and hours may be spotty this week until his situation is settled.
I may be reached best by email.
We will be CLOSED until March 4th. We will re-open Thursday March 4th.
We will be CLOSED on
Tuesday and Wednesday August 18th and 19th, 2020.

Between the dates of June 26th - August 6th, Lindsay is under going medical treatments. We are at the mercy of the hospital's scheduling, and our shop hours may vary during this time period, due to her various doctor appointments and infusion schedule.
