OCS is a modern take on the traditional general store, a place where all kinds of interesting things come together that make us feel good, look good, and add a little bit of fun to daily life.  A mixture of the familiar with the unique, a stockist of all things charming!  Whether it’s made of wood or cloth, whether it was found in our community or on a trip, OCS stock it because they admire its craftsmanship, respect its quality, appreciate its uniqueness, but ultimately…because it just makes them happy.

Salty is one of the new breed of Byron folk. He designs both land & seaworthy shorts with some simple t-shirts & sweatshirts thrown in for good measure.  A pretty simple fella, Salty loves making clothes for himself and the like-minded. He loves his music, especially Palma Violets, and enjoys putting his recently designed bottle openers to good use… responsibly of course!  Returning for the third time at the Very Small Mall, drop by, pick up some new threads and say “ahoy”!

Spell conjures lovely adornments of leather, turquoise, feathers, vintage silks, sterling silver and any gypsy treasures collected along the way.  For the 60’s wild child girls and gypsy spirits, Spell is your treasure cave.

Stack on Spell adornments, denim cut offs, a vintage rocker tee or maxi flower dress, add chunky boots and voila…you have a Spell girl!
