Doesn't take long to browse the small shop, but you could spend a lot of time watching the glassblower doing his thing. It was very interesting to watch and the end results were breathtaking. Definitely worth going to visit!

Very cool to stop in and see the glass creations being made. Brought home a bowl as a souvenir - prices are reasonable considering the are made right in front of you and are unique pieces. Plenty of seating to view the studio.
