Owner Lois Cataldo has an eye for what is beautiful, collectable, and useful, which is why her business has drawn people to town for over 30 years.   Employing nine people, she carries antiques, collectables, any holiday decoration you might imagine, Yankee candles, linens, a HUGE selection of quality yarn and knitting accessories, house wares, greeting cards, stationary, toys, photo and scrap albums, baby gifts and clothes, Christening outfits, Crabtree and Evelyn skin care products, made-to-order gift baskets, women's clothing, and that's just the beginning!  "We've recently increased our clothing line" explains Lois.  "Our customers were fed-up with the size 2 collections in the mall.  We offer sizes small through as large as an item is available."

"People come from all over for our yarn; they are thrilled with our selection." The store offers knitting classes from a local expert.  Stop in and ask when the next class is scheduled to begin.

This store is beautiful--it makes me think of the Flintstone's house in that whenever Fred or Wilma were walking through it, it seemed to get bigger and bigger and bigger but from the outside it was just a normal-sized place. Brass Lantern is like an endlessly delightful shopping experience.
