The Works is stocked — and by stocked we mean every inch is filled — with unique and beautiful gift items and an eclectic, ever-changing selection of clothing. Although virtually none of the gift items are made locally, almost all are high-quality, hand-crafted items. Merchandise varies from pottery and kitchen tools to original paintings and gardening supplies. Although most of the merchandise is handmade, some commercial fashion items such as Ugg boats and leather coats are for sale. The staff is friendly and helpful but perfectly content to allow folks to browse for hours.
