Coyote on Main St.

We’ve displayed a number of interesting and unusual items in our windows since we opened in 2002, but this week’s window may win the prize for generating the most interest and causing quite a stir on Main Street.  This may not be your typical Easter weekend window, but it’s definitely a howliday when we have a coyote in the window.

This beautiful coyote will be available for purchase to the first person in line when the doors open on Mon., April 6.
