What type of business do you operate — what you sell, services provided? We are a retail store, also offering custom picture framing. We carry a variety of work by local artists as well as repurposed items.

What sets your business apart from similar ventures? We are happy to offer a venue for local art as well as helping save the environment by selling repurposed furniture and many other items. Also, we pride ourselves in carrying goods made in the USA.

What customers do you reach? Our customer base is varied and we serve our local communities as well as visitors from South Bend and surrounding areas.

How does the future look? Our future is tied directly to the future growth of downtown Buchanan. Hoping that we can become more than just a “weekend” shopping venue. We continue to build a more and more solid base of repeat customers who come to us when they need a gift or item that is special and not found anywhere else.
