We went in and got to see the glassblower making a few items for the store. He answered everyones questions and went into detail about the craft. A fun little shop and you leave with some facts about how the store came to be

Thousands of glass items displayed well. Great craftsmanship is obvious. No glass blowing demo, as we were there when shop opened.
