Beer, wine, coffee, body scrubs, soap, and candles...sounds like an old fashioned country store, however MV DiY Café is more up scale than a "rootin' tootin"' country watering hole. This chic café features small round tables with mix matched chairs for intimate seating, black wooden cabinetry and shelving to display the one of a kind, hand carved candles. Another wall has been converted into a DIY chalkboard with black floating shelves to display bath salts, soaps, and aromatherapy soy candles as well as information such as scents and prices.
While enjoying conversation you can take in the scents of fresh coffee and tea as well as the scents of several beauty products. MV DiY Café offers the following beauty products:
