If you are here to peruse our concerts then we have delayed them due to the current covid surge. With vaccination numbers increasing we are hoping the surge will wilt and our hospitals empty so that can happily return to concerts in February. Call us to be placed in our email offerings for up to date info on our events.
Our store and cafe are open for regular business and have all the safety protocols in place that one would expect... We're seating only to half capacity and request that folks mask up when not eating or drinking. We have an excellent air remediation system and our staff is careful and responsible with our cleaning regime. We believe we're one of the safest locations around and we hope to see you here soon.
Our hours in the cafe are 10-3, Tuesday-Sunday. Our store is open 10-5, Tuesday-Sunday.
Please walk in and enjoy our yummy food and beautiful wares that make a difference to artists and craftspeople throughout the world!!
