I grew up in Valpo and have been visiting Lifestyles for many, many years. I love the store and art boutique. I go there often to pick up cool and unique gifts for friends and family. I always find the staff and owner to be quite unfriendly, and on some occasions, rude. Unfortunately, whoever does their buying has great taste and I keep on going. It is unfortunate that a store with so much to offer is so uncomfortable to be in. If you can steer clear of the staff, I think you will find this store full of great chioces for your next gift.
