Worth a visit. Local artists displayed. Many wood crafts. Bought a Larchwood (Cape Breton Manufactured) Cutting board. See photo. Would have bought more of the wood crafts, like the wood plates which could be used as cheese plates or snack plates. Also very helpful and...More
Worth stopping by if you are searching for work by local artisans or just browsing. Includes all kinds of crafts (food to jewelry) with especially nice glass section.
Should improve on hospitality. This is the only place in Cape Breton I did not feel welcomed!
Such a wonderful time I had touring through this spot full of unique craft items. Could have easily spent a great deal more time than I had just enjoying the beautiful hand made pieces. Make time to visit.
Just stopped in after seeing a Visitor Center brochure. Very nice selection of local art, pottery,jewelry, wood, etc. Bought a very unique pewter pendant for my wife for a bargain price. Great place to kill an hour in Sydney.More

Nothing particularly significant. Crafts are similar to what find at most cities in the summer. We found better things out in the countryside with better pricing as well.More
