First time I had stopped at this unique store and won't be the last. Lots of interesting clothing, artwork, jewelry and home decor. I love finding items that are different and not found everywhere. The owner was very friendly and my purchases were wrapped with care and attention to detail as some were gifts - lovely wrapping and ribbon.

This little store has some very nice artistic items but mostly over priced. Nothing really quaint I think it has location as bonus factor for them. Not much competion for them. There are so many of these types of shops all over NS which carry quality artistic items for your money. We all found this store overpriced.

We pride ourselves on selecting quality Canadian handmade items and selling them at a reasonable price. You are certainly right about our location, Mahone Bay is a lovely spot and we are... More

Every time I go into this shop, I leave with a bag. It has a great selection of accessories and gift decor. Always a great time to browse even if you don't buy.

Looking for possible gift items visited Northern Sun Gallery. It was filled with fine high quality knit hats and scarves, lace blouses, fine leather purses and totes and an array of lovely high end clothing. The prices were very reasonable and I expect to return for a purchase.

I visited this store as knew that they stocked "Fish By Fire" which I am collecting. The whole store however is a cornucopia of lovely hand crafted items and worth a look.
