The shop will be open for normal business, including curb-side pickup, from 10am to 5pm on Tuesday March 24th. Afterwards, we will be closing the front of house for the duration of the shelter-in-place order. During this time, we will continue to ship orders and respond to email as we are available.

[News] Layout Closed till Future Notice

For the health and safety of our customers and friends, the layout will be closed until after April 1. We will reassess the situation and provide a further update at that time.

The shop will remain open for shipping and pickups as long as the Indiana government allows us to do so. We are taking additional safety precautions, including more frequently disinfecting public spaces, and are willing to accommodate special needs such as curbside pickup.

We strongly recommend placing credit card orders via the website; you can still pick up the order by clicking the "Pickup in Store" button in the shopping cart. We'll pull the product and notify you when it's ready to pick up.

If you have any questions or concerns, we can be reached via phone at 765-292-2022.
