This shop is a joy to mosey around in. It is representation of New Brunswick artist. Displaying silver jewellery, glass, pottery, porcelain and art. Worth spending time in and pondering your next art purchase.

I have been in several times, and purchased a few pieces of pottery and unique jewellery. They always have great pieces and it's quite fun to go in and have a peek, even if you don't plan on buying.
