The owner was super helpful and friendly! I truly enjoyed my experience here and she made getting my first pair of ballet slippers an amazing experience! They also have a pretty wide selection of shoes, clothing, and accessories. Highly recommend going here! - Autumn L.

Very nice staff.  I'm a dad and know nothing about this stuff.  My other half does and the staff got her exactly what our daughter needed.  Was very busy on the weekend but still an easy in and out with what was needed. - Terrence J.
