Lovely shop that stocks lots of local handmade and handcrafted items. The shopkeeper was kind and helpful in explaining pieces. Prices are reasonable considering they are handmade. Really nice to purchase a little local handmade souvenir supporting local artisans!

Lovely shop with local artists. Unique art and a good wide range of appeal. Staff exceptional and very helpful! For me this is the best independent shop in plymouth

Slightly out of the ordinary, mostly original, but quite expensive, domestic accessories to pretty your house and fill window sills, coffee tables and wall space. Looks OK in the shop but maybe a bit uncomfortable in an average house. We bought some glass coasters for a tipsy maiden aunt.

Great range of interesting high quality craft and sculptural work produced by local artists. Wide range of prices, including the very affordable. Also, good selection of greeting cards. Obtained some cheerful mugs which are very uplifting in the morning!

Like it and have bought a couple of things. More decorative than practical. Said to ne the city's only gallery for comtemporary applied art. Currently a show by a glass artist unexpectedly with the surname Glass. Worth a look.

Worth having a look in here. Well above average selection. Quite expensive. We bought a couple of excellently bound large leather journals and coveted some bizarre industrial cast off lights. Lots more and we will look again when we have some spare cash.

Good deal better stuff than most of the tat for sale in Southside Street. Well worth a look. Limited amount of the stock has any practical use. The rest depends on your personal taste and the depth of your pocket.

Always keen to look at new arts and crafts. Not sure how to rate this place. There is practical stuff, post cards, coasters, tiles, mirrors, fire irons, some dinky and some more in your face or unusually fiddly things. Undoubted skills on show. Geared towards emerging artists or craft workers. Falls in that gap between possible gifts that you know... More
