A Special Note
We are grateful that we did not experience any damage from the storms and tornadoes that occurred in Southwest Michigan last night.  We had an inch and a half a rain and some small hail, but everything is okay this morning.Our thoughts are with all of our neighboring communities of Centerville, Nottawa, Mendon, Colon, and Portage which have severe damage and are working to recover.
Thank You!
Thanks to all our customers who helped us kick off our 2024 season last week!  It was nice to see so many of you again.  And feeling in a springy mood, (and needing to test our bakery ovens, donut machine, and baking skills!), we even decided to make a surprise batch of donuts for everyone to enjoy.We are your one-stop gift headquarters for Mother’s Day!  We have a unique variety and great selection on hand, and guarantee we have something that every mom, grandma, aunt, and special friend on your list will enjoy!  See our timely shopping guide below.
