A fun store to run into if you want to check out some local art, as well as some mass-produced posters. They also have non-poster based art, such as figures and postcards.More

This is worth the visit. We stopped in and the two women were attentive and welcoming. They give a good overview of some of the collection, and invite us to see more online at our leisure
