So glad we found this. Made a great last-day stop to pick up gifts. They have everything - furniture, hammocks, tees, trinkets, and everything imaginable made of wood. Prices range from $2 (wood bead bracelets) to about $175 (those ubiquitous wood and leather rockers).

This was a charming place to have brunch, relax and buy souvenirs. You can walk around the area and enjoy of the frog pond, beautiful wood chairs and masterpieces. The food was delicious and the whole experience was enjoyable.
