A well stocked and interesting store. Wide range of prices from reasonable to expensive. Lots of artwork, pottery, jewellery, along with giftware. Our purchases were carefully packed for travel. We stop here to browse every time we go to Mahone Bay.

Great place to pick up some local artwork at fairly reasonable prices...there are some more expensive things if you can afford them. Friendly staff.
