On top of the hill and hide-away


Ryan OConnell

Hideaway Gifts, a new shop full of unique items, is open on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5 to 8 p.m, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturdays and beginning at noon on Sundays.

Jo Kittelmann threw a kitchen boa around her neck, a three-foot-long cloth with red dish towels at the head and tail, and explained its usefulness. Instead of a wet tea towel over the shoulder, the boa keeps shirts from getting soaked while allowing either end to be wet and the other dry. Or both dry. Or both wet. It's one piece of material with four possibilities.

Unique items like the boa are what Hideaway Gifts is all about. Located in the Rockwellesque school house by the old county yard, the store aims to bring "things you can't get in Ekalaka" to Ekalaka.

Soaps disguised as delicious...
