In house favorites include the Book Nook, selling gently used hardback and paperback books, and the Collectors’ Corner, offering a glorious selection of previously loved, gently used home accessories, linens, china, silver, glassware and antiques. The Bear Paw Bakery, will offer homemade sweet and savory treats and the Crazy Bear Café will be serving breakfast and lunch and invite you to rest awhile in comfortable tented seating.
