Wife and I shopped here today and they had a good selection of pottery and gifts, plus some good looking local sweaters. Wife tried on one and bought it. Nice sales staff, pleasant store. Children shouldn't be brought in this store; too many shiny breakables.

I've been shopping here for years! I visit Mahone Bay about once a year and I'm never disappointed. I always find something (or a few something's!) very special. Unique jewelry and clothes, art and pottery! Definitely my favorite store in Mahone Bay!

Great shop for unusual home and jewelry items. Many locally made. Small but very nice section of women's clothes and accessories. Great stop for small gifts to take back home.

We recently visited the store and I had my 11 year old son with me. I was hoping to let him experience some art and culture. He picked up a beaded dragonfly that was not fragile to show his older sister. The store clerk grabbed it from him and replaced it on the shelf with no explanation. He was well... More

This shop has been a 'must visit' for me for many years. The service is excellent and the selection of gifts, clothing and jewellery shows an eye for the unusual but tasteful, that differentiates it from other shops. I like that local artisans are featured and the quality is higher than you can find elsewhere. What I like best however,... More

Their jewellery selection is exceptional with many local designers represented and a large choice of well designed costume jewellery as well. They also show crafts in glass, pottery, wood and stone. One can easily spend an hour browsing in this shop so... More

Lots and lots of great gifts to take home with you. But, especially, the jewelry. Unique pieces, mostly silver: earrings, bracelets, necklaces, etc.... Stuff you won't see anywhere else. And all very good quality.

I found that this is a shopper`s paradise. Wonderful glass art work, beautiful jewellery presented in an airy and welcoming atmosphere. And the staff knows what there are talking about. If you are looking for fancy clothes, they have it. Looking for a gift.? This shop has it. This is a really awesome place!

I've just read the review, "Uncomfortable Experience" posted by Chrissy 90, a lady unhappy with the male half of the couple who own Northern Sun and I think that she might have misinterpreted the unfolding of events when she, for the second time, visited Northern Sun recently. I, as a long time customer, know both owners of this particularly nice... More

I purchased some lovely tops for the total of $200. The saleswoman was very helpful and pleasant and I was happy with the purchase. I went back the following day to look for some jewelry as accent pieces. I had my coat over my shoulders. The husband owner manager hovered nearby, watching me look at the pins and pendants, then...
