Unfortunately this beautiful shop has closed permanently. There are two other shops a little further down the hill on the same side and they sell similar products.

This family business is excellent. We purchased a beautiful jumper for my husband (who loathes shipping and trying things on). I warned the assistant of this and she left us completely alone and responded so helpfully when asked for advice.
