Their three-story Barn Swallow Antique and Gift Shop carries unique treasures, vintage clothing, art, and jewelry. Stop in at the Rock Shop and watch as they cut, tumble and polish stones. The Rock Shop carries Petoskey stones, native Michigan copper, petrified wood, driftwood, beach glass, agates, amethyst and items made from natural stone.
