If your child would like to do something other than the ornamental craft, they are welcome to choose a regularly-priced ($12) base.

The books we read each week are on loan from Annie Bloom's Books, right next door. Stop on by to see these and other great titles!

Locally Made

Small, medium, or large - they're all colorful, sparkly, and gorgeously-durable (you can wear them in the shower!). A Portland-native currently living in California, Nikki Conley hand makes these deceptively delicate bracelets. Perfect for all ages.
