    My favorite woman owned/run shop is MOSS in Port Angeles, WA. Haley Croxford is a PAHS Graduate that moved away and then returned a few years ago. Her store is a clothing store in downtown Port Angeles. It is Northwest Themed and her artistic design is self created and always changing. We were a logging town, but with economic changes, four of our five mills have shut down, and have been torn down. Haley and a few other former classmates are transforming our shuttered downtown area. They have unique and fresh ideas and are very community oriented. Their hard work and ingenuity are showing promise. I think it says so much about the commitment of this community…..we support our young people ……and they give back ten-fold…..Perpetuity… wonderful!

She has special spring, fall, holiday, and sidewalk sales in which she still mails a colorful postcard to your home for each one. She goes out of her way to help you get what you want…. dismantling displays and putting things together to see if you like it and looking in the back for more of the items you are looking for! She has a warm, inviting, friendly store and customer service is a top priority for her!
