Why the goat? Who’s William G. Wright?
We fell in love with goats at an early age. I mean really, who doesn’t love them? They are playful, curious and love everything, well love to eat everything and we love to celebrate everything. Clearly, a perfect match. Our founding year, 2015 also happens to be the year of the goat. So, why not?
P.S. William G. Wright is the name of our fictitious goat in our logo. His nickname “Billy” also inspired the name of our 3 foot oversized Billy balloons.
Where can I park when I visit your shop?
Our building, known as Swanson’s Ivanhoe Row, has it’s own parking lot at the end of our building near Alden Rd. Spots in this lot turnover quickly. If it’s full when you arrive circle the building & a spot will most likely open up.
