This store had artistic flair. It almost looked like a museum. They had lots to offer: pottery, quilts. Jewelry, frames, weaving and wooden items. The owner was very nice and enjoyed talking with us. I enjoy stores like these. Worthwhile to visit.

The owner of this shop has a keen eye for quality workmanship. No kitsch here. Lots of pottery, hand-woven goods, and attractive original sketches/paintings. Prices are not cheap, but given the quality they seem justified.

Not a souvenir shop...whew. Great array of quilts, pottery, wood craft, jewelry, paintings, and some good knitting.

We enjoyed our visit to this shop on the way from Ingonish to Cheticamp. Functional and unique offerings and they have shipping.

The art and craft products were tastefully displayed and the prices were clearly marked. All the work is made locally. Shipping is also provided if needed.

You will find here mostly chunky pottery (versus fine, delicate pottery). There are some quilts upstairs and some other interesting unique local arts and crafts. I purchased a lovely wool felt hat and a unique woolen scarf.

They had interesting quality items, however I have to agree it was QUITE pricey. I feel its important to support local artists and businesses, so I really wish there had been a few more less expensive items to choose from.

What a collection of quilts and pottery. We have seen many quilts as my wife is an avid quilter but nothing like this in a rather remote small sized shop. The art work was displayed on the walls, over railings and the shelves were loaded...More
