Tiny Jewel BoxTiny Jewel Box

The Tiny Jewel Box is actually an ironic name for this multi-story boutique that offers an amazing array of souvenirs and gifts. A good part of the inventory is acquired through area estate sales, and that means that you'll find one-of-a-kind pieces like broaches, earrings and an always-changing assortment of antique jewelry. Also, new diamond and platinum items are on display for you to view. Plus, don't miss some of the other gift ideas like sweaters, crystal candlesticks and painted coffee mugs that will please that one friend of yours who always seems to be difficult to buy gifts for.
