The Moon and the Monocle, Unique Treasures by Trish and Tattoos by Amanda are three women owned businesses with various backgrounds who have come together to reinvent the historic building which includes a clothing boutique, artisan jewelry and Tattoo studio.

In addition, the Shops offer a wide variety of classes and workshops led by local artisans; paint nights, jewelry workshops, succulent planting designs, all in a positive and creative space.
