Visited their annual event with light show and fireworks. Far too many people but but good atmosphere, fireworks were average as well due to foggy evening but music, refreshment and shows worked well. Worth to visit when near by early January

Excuse me, but here we have to contradict. There are still many exclusive and expensive unique pieces of glass with a lot of cut and engraving to buy from us. But times change. The taste of the people changes. Today other products are in demand...More
