Maddie is a certified therapy dog that they take to the hospital to help cheer up patients.The store carries soaps, lotions, crafts, artwork and even candies made here in the area, that may also be found at the Farmers Market. Brenda said they are expecting to receive a teal blue couch and a glass door bookcase from the early 1920s, soon to be put up for sale.Hank is a big fan of the furniture while Brenda leans more towards lace tablecloths, linens and jewelry. Hank travels two to three times a year across the country looking for new things to sell in their store.
