Even though we are temporarily closed, you can still see one of our latest acquisitions - a gorgeous vintage stained glass window was salvaged from St. Paul's Methodist church. Take a look at our windows that face Chestnut Avenue when you walk or drive by at night - the lovely stained glass will be lit up.

It was installed in memory of Charmian Lewis, a 3-year old #SSF girl who was tragically killed after being struck by a truck.
