Meadow loves lifting heavy objects and rearranging the store. She also all things geeky and antiquey (she can school the best of us on salvage knowledge). She is also “slightly” obsessed with antique sewing machines.
Direct quote “Hi my name is Toby. I collect roadkill.”
Bindi will be your personal shopper and gently carries cabinet hardware and plumbing parts to customers around the store…even if you don’t want it.
Don’t let his cold demeanor fool you! This pup LOVES to get loved on, he just makes you work for it.
