Dropped in and purchased a small vase to add to my collection. There are many pieces on display to choose from, so colorful with interesting designs.

The glass works here are amazing. Love to buy as a souvenir of our trip. Neat to watch the blowers work and kids can take classes here too.

What makes it so interesting is watching the artisans perform their craft. if this type of art interests you it is worth a visit even if you don't find something that suits you taste or budget.

We couldn't resist bringing home a piece of art. If you like art glass visit this shop. You can even watch while they make pieces of art glass.Lots of different things to choose from that are beautiful.

Went in with our daughter & grand daughters & stayed to watch them work on a Spirit Bear. The girls were absolutely fascinated and loved watching it being shaped in the heat and blown by the artisan. Daughter ordered one for herself! We can’t wait...More

Roberts pieces are full of colour, creativity ...very unique. Did you know you can even have a piece made to keep ashes of your loved one &/or pet??

My husband and I did a class where we made a glass ornament. We had so much fun learning how to make it, and being in the shop. We will definitely do this again.
