“Arty! Arty! Arty!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 February 2012

If you like art, you will enjoy coming here.
It's quiet, colourful and old.
Located in Salamance - great location, you can't go wrong.

Wonderful Tasmanian crafts, especially wood. Our many purchases put us a bit over the top on baggage weight....
