Brand new store in Obs, Moose, is brimming with charm from the astro turf floor to Morris the Moose who is mounted high up on the wall.

10and5: Where did the idea for the store come from?

Moose: Through many hours of conceptualizing ideas and realizing we need a spot do to what we want to do and showcase what we think is cool.

10and5: Please tell us about your screenprinted bags:

Moose: The concept behind them is to purchase and fill the bags with the ingredients of the recipes printed on them and to give that as a new, fresh, DIY gift to the people that follow the latest craze of making fresh things themselves. We also do customize screenprinting for anyone that’s interested.
