Founded by Don and Cathy Statz in 1996, Victorian Village still employs many of its original staffers, who remain dedicated to helping guests find their ideal gift. Sips of gourmet coffee and nibbles of cookies provide much-needed sustenance as shoppers navigate the sprawling 15,999-square-foot store. Collectibles from Brighton, Lladro, and Swarovski beckon from their dedicated nooks, and patterned accessories by Vera Bradley encourage appropriate organization of toiletries, jewelry, and paisley swatch collections.

An 18-acre equestrian retreat, Annwyn Equestrian Center guides riders through lessons atop friendly steeds housed in the center’s 36 spacious stalls. The accomplished instructors lead beginner and experienced horse mounters through one-on-one, 45-minute lessons across the facility’s three lit arenas. Jumping lessons cover riding basics, acquainting drivers with their mammalian carriages before advancing gallopers to fence jumping and puddle splashing. Commonly referred to as "ballet with horses," dressage lessons teach balance and build core strength as horse whisperers move and control their animals with their body instead of with a deceptively out-of-reach carrot. Four-legged vantage points bolster cores with a cardio workout and help riders to gain self-confidence or relieve stress as they braid the mane of a newly acquired equine pal.
