I walked right by the store, but I'm always listening & when someone came out of the store & said to his wife: "I haven't seen this anywhere else" I had to go inside!

Lots of cool things to look at & buy. I didn't have a lot of time because it was almost 5pm and the owner was ready to close so I tried not to take too long. He's been in business for 40 yrs, he lives upstairs.

Things I got in my short time:

Humboldt Honey Star Thistle 14oz for $5.25. He also sells Clover & Wildflower. Someone before me got 2 jars of the Star Thistle & said it was the best he's ever tried. I wanted to buy more, B. wouldn't let me.

Zimmerman's Homemade Jam Strawberry Rhubarb 16oz for $4.45 - made in Blue Lake, CA

Flaherty Farms Wild Blackberry Bliss Jam 11.5oz for $6.75 - made in Ferndale, CA.

B. got Williams Mug Shaving Soap 1.75oz bar for $1.85 ea. - he hasn't tried it yet.

Yelpers say to check out the upstairs museum - Hope to next time I go.

Don't miss this store!
