Worth looking in. Interesting collection of well made stuff. Bit pricey as gifts.

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 your friend might love or could hate, and things you quite like the look of but know that it wouldn't look right in your traditional or modern home and anyway isn't of that astonishingly good quality that it would deserve being put on display. It's a shop I might pause to look in but am unlikely to buy much from. Perhaps the heavy strap line description at the top of this new listing may pull in a few punters for Xmas. I wish the place well, it drips earnestness.
