The Artisan Center is a can’t-miss store for people who like precious gifty items or are looking for the perfect gift. Outside the store there are typical colorful wind chimes or garden items, and inside it’s a plethora of trinkets. There are baby clothes, soaps, candles, jewelry, dishes, scarves, rugs, cards, and little bowls of even tinier things like matchbox shrines. It seems like there is never a season when this store is not busy with customers carefully selecting just the right treasure. They also offer free and lovely gift wrapping.
