Of special note is this:

Visit their site for more information.  And check the August, 2018 issue of Rock&Gem magazine for a wonderful profile on the rock shop and its  two owners, Cyndy Mandell and Lois Papner. It’s the first of a two part article on these enterprising women and the much needed rock shop they’ve created with hard work and dedication.
