A note on accessibility at the shop: We have a graded entry that allows for smooth mobility or stroller access, but the door is currently not powered. If getting the door open poses a challenge we are more than happy to help (an auto opener is top of our dream list). Inside the shop aisles are wide and allow for freedom of movement and music is at mid-volume and located to one side of the shop. Some customers do notice the scent from our candles, soaps & coffee but no scents are added to the environment.
