Loved this shop! I wish you had a website so I could order from home! I bought a lovely red scarf, hand made hat and wanted to buy a blanket but just not enough room to pack it! Lisa

At Joyce's you will find a unique selection of quality items: it was the best craft display of our whole two-week touring trip of the Wild Atlantic Coast. A delight. Colours, touch ... all splendid taste.
