we're two!

 

 

Today we're 2 and are feeling so grateful.

In two years we have witnessed first dates, families grow, shared sadness in loss, celebrated new jobs, new homes, and have shared our dreams and stories. We have been embraced by our community and we hope you feel embraced by us when you walk through the shop door.
