Whenever I am in Mahone Bay I love going into all of the little shops, including this one. Northern Sun has a beautiful selection of items and I always leave with something to take home with me. However, both times I have been in the sales person has been less than friendly. I always feel like I am being watched... More

I felt like a bull in a china shop here and the clientele was well-heeled and female. Down a couple steps is a fenced in garden area with outdoor art objects. Inside I can imagine what your neighbours would have to say about a gong wind chime. Fancy wood turned bowls, art objects, jewellery, and pictures. I bought a print... More

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

Northern Sun always has some stylish different clothes and wonderful accessories such as purses and hats and sweaters. 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!
