We would like to take you on a visual tour of MOSACK'S twelve rooms of shopping pleasure and nostalgia displayed in our three-story century home and attached storefront in historic Mentor, Ohio.
Our prayer is that people find rest, nourishment, fellowship and community within the 12 rooms of our charming century home (named after the twelve apostles)....just as the early followers shared the Spirit of Christ in their homes.
Betty & Joe Vento, Proprietors
