    And the art gallery upstairs was well curated. The pieces were compelling, the energy behind them felt quite strong and layered. Well done!

    Stumbling into the hardware store downstairs was like walking into a treasure chest for someone who loves industrial hardware with character like me!

    Art work was intriguing. The space was too small and too hot to comfortably accommodate the crowd
