5 Star Yelp Review: "Post a poor Party City experience, I googled to find this place then popped in frantic to find a last minute set of wings and a halo for my kid's school play- because some people are not issued them and have to BUY them. The vibe was cool, the staff was friendly and showed me to not only to a plentiful selection of what I needed, but also the Eco and PC aspects I would never have considered on my own. Surprise! Some people care about fur and feathers, who knew? Local owned and operated, I will doubtless be back many times and will recommend others to give them a try."
