Rhonda C. says on Yelp: "I had walked by this shop several times, but this particular day Kingsley (the owner) was outside tending to a newly acquired piece of furniture in need of a little TLC. His gentle demeanor and genuine love for fine craftmanship reeled me in. I couldn't resist buying a few of the pieces, because I had never seen anything like them and I was worried that I might not again. A Rockridge gem!"
