Chinchil-la is sure to brighten your day and your home


Chinchil-la opened just a couple of weeks ago and the buzz about the new business keeps getting louder.

Mimi Koch, opened the by-appointment-only store, at 414 First Street. What was formerly a potato warehouse and then a single family home is now Chinchil-la. From the moment one approaches, it is easy to suspect you will be turning you head in circles trying to take in the collection of items tucked in every corner inside and out.
