The huge parking lot behind the building offers ample space for all visitors. A hand written sign at the entrance of the store features the business’s store hours and upcoming events. When entering the first thing you notice is that it is clean and well lit. The folks at the desk, most likely owners Cindy and Steve Hancock, invite visitors in to look around, ready to explain what they are doing or even walk through the huge business with patrons. There is 7500 square feet of space, enough for over 50 vendors. The building was a warehouse until Steve gutted the entire thing. With a background in construction, he rebuilt the old building, which had been vacant for several years. A small table sits at the window just off the entrance, allowing those taking a break to do some people watching as new friends come through the door. And that’s the summary of the vibe in the place: friends. Both Steve and Cindy, along with their employees, make everyone feel like an old friend.
Cindy and Steve both want to make C & S and Geneseo a stop on the way down Antique Alley.
