The Centre fro Craft and design has the best quality art pieces on the Island.
From oil paintings to pottery it has it all.
I would highly recommend.

I’ve previously visited Cape Breton and have seen many beautiful examples of local arts and crafts. This craft centre has a very poor selection and is grossly over priced.

I was hoping to see a selection of rug hooking from the Cheticamp area, but there was only one small item for $300. I overheard some American tourists from a cruise ship complaining about the quality and exhorbitant price for a machine made quilt. I found much nicer items at a local church craft show.

It was sad to see so many shops in Sydney attempt to price gouge the cruise ship tourists. They will unlikely return.

They had some beautiful items in that store. I liked the stained-glass windows the most. It was so attractive.

They had some postcards as well and beautiful quilts. They even had some paintings.

I enjoyed exploring the beauty of this shop. It was worthwhile to visit!

Extremely nice arts and crafts as well as beautiful art work and jewelry, right off the main street in town.

The facility is very nice. Might have rated higher but the craft shops were closed. Display of hand crafted ear rings in the lobby nicely done and thankfully the shop selling them was close as the wife was interested in several pairs.
