Beautiful original glasswork of all kinds and all sizes. We were certainly wowed by the work on display, and they also di custom work. Prices are also reasonable, and owner is very friendly, ready to chat and discuss the art.

It's wonderful to be recognized as a "destination" to be visited here in Elora (aka Centre Wellington). Very kind, than you.

There are so many beautiful pieces in this shop I don't think I could pick just one. Lovely wind chimes, framed glass art, Christmas tree decorations, jewellery and more. Very unique and beautiful gift ideas.
