Well worth a visit for unique handmade arts and crafts. A peaceful sanctuary away from the noise and heat outside. The owners are very talented artists and are very welcoming and a pleasure to spend time talking to. Please go and enjoy.

My husband and I were grateful that we dropped by. There was plenty to see, in all price ranges. Great prints, porcelain, metalware and jewellery. They also wrapped our purchases very, very well.
