"I actively advertised for crafters to have their work here," said owner Judy Shaffer, who recently . She said that, at her peak, she was selling goods from 120 different crafters.

"I really try to find crafters that are local," she said. "That's where I started and where I've tried to stay over the years."

Just take a quick walk around the front room to find almost a dozen local crafters. Check out the photo gallery above to see some of the great crafts and goods being made in Tolland and the surrounding area.
