This shop has works from a variety of local artists. It's a good place to shop for those who are hard to buy for and support our local artists.

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.

We didn't find a thing we liked and could take home with us. Lots of breakable and fragile items more so than paintings.

This is a little gem of an art boutique featuring pottery, jewellery, painting, wooden bowls and lots of other arty items for sale. I am still thinking about the earrings that I wished I had bought but did't. Lovely to support the local artists!

Recently visited here for a photography exhibit. I was surprised by the number of local artists represented. They also carry a great magazine called "Created Here" which has fantastic personal interviews with well known and not so well known local artists. Highly recommend if you are looking for a unique gift or nice pottery.

A lovely and original modern art vendor. Things I have never seen before. Wood bowls, metal sculptures and more. Very close to the cruise ship terminal, at the base of King street (the local main street) Must see if you are in town and like beautiful things.
