I love this store. I walk by here almost daily & admit I don't stop to come inside here as much as I'd like to. The display windows are thoughtfully put together with great taste which would win anyone over. The store is also a trap (a fun one, too). It has everything you need and so many things you don't need that you end up buying because you want to. The products don't feel cheaply made so you know whatever you're buying is of decent quality. The staff are super kind. I'm approached by all - and you never have to go searching for someone because they always find you first. (love this method). I came inside the store because I had to pick up a few things to organize my bedroom - all of which was displayed in one isle making it an easy shopping experience. As someone who has crippling anxiety going shopping in general, this store eliminated that feeling for me so I'll definitely be back, like, tomorrow. They're an awesome crafts store. But more than that. Cooking, cleaning, tool...

Love Cliffs so much! They carry such a great variety of things. Their items are a mixture of essentials, quirky, fun and high quality. I could browse for hours. The staff is lovely and it’s an altogether excellent shopping experience!!
