"I love this store! I love the cabin-like feel,  I love the vibe of the staff,  I love the complementary coffee/cider,  I love the merchandise.  This is the best gift store for any occasion ! There really is something for everyone at every price point! Not only for your outdoorsy friends, but also for the ones who aspire to be or think they are. I've been shopping here for 20 years now (and have also taken classes). It's so much more than a store! It's establishments like this that make a community, well, a community."
