Visited on a Saturday. The selection of bowls and other wood products was impressive. The location was a little off putting but the pleasant staff made the trip worthwhile.

Purchased a couple of the etched bowls. Very pretty for displaying. They also offer several other items that would be a great souvenir.

Very nice shop; staff was great and friendly. It was interesting watching the laser burning the designs. The prices were good-high enough to make it special but not too high that you wouldn't buy something.
