The Art of Shopping Local...

You won't need to load up the wagon before you come here as we have everything you need. Lots of shops that carry island-made or regionally-sourced goods as well as wheelbarrows, wellie boots and everything in-between. All of our stores, shops and services are locally-owned, so a dollar spent here strengthens our island economy.
