Magic and curiosities can be found in the Curiosity Shop this December.

The Curiosity Shop is your place to unplug and explore thousands of gently used books with selections for all ages and interests, a large assortment of art supplies, handmade pottery, artwork from local creators, and more.

Seasonal items available include one-of-a-kind potted plants, handmade cyanotype notecards, and recyclable wrapping paper.
