this place has truly made my experience at peak city New Jersey amazing. The unique merchandise sold is beautiful and I have bought so much of it for my house. They have everything you could imagine and the store is always clean and organized. I came here nearly every single day on my vacation as it truly made me happy. There is not one complaint I can think of about this store. It is a family owned business with a beautiful backstory. The owners are so nice and are always striving to make sure that the customers are happy and enjoy the store. They certainly make the store better and are always smiling. I can not stress enough how much I recommend this store. You won't regret coming!!
