This shop has been a 'must visit' for me for many years. The service is excellent and the selection of gifts, clothing and jewellery shows an eye for the unusual but tasteful, that differentiates it from other shops. I like that local artisans are featured and the quality is higher than you can find elsewhere. What I like best however, is that the clothes are stylish - not the stuff you find in the big boxes geared for teens and twenty-somethings. These clothes are for adults who appreciate good design without that 'look at me' vibe. Enjoy!

Northern Sun always has some stylish different clothes and wonderful accessories such as purses and hats and sweaters. Their jewellery selection is exceptional with many local designers represented and a large choice of well designed costume jewellery as well. They also show crafts in glass, pottery, wood and stone. One can easily spend an hour browsing in this shop so if your partner is not keen send him/her out for a coffee along with the newspaper.

Lots and lots of great gifts to take home with you. But, especially, the jewelry. Unique pieces, mostly silver: earrings, bracelets, necklaces, etc.... Stuff you won't see anywhere else. And all very good quality.

I found that this is a shopper`s paradise.
Wonderful glass art work, beautiful jewellery presented in an airy and welcoming atmosphere.
And the staff knows what there are talking about. If you are looking for fancy clothes, they have it.
Looking for a gift.? This shop has it. This is a really awesome place!

I've just read the review, "Uncomfortable Experience" posted by Chrissy 90, a lady unhappy with the male half of the couple who own Northern Sun and I think that she might have misinterpreted the unfolding of events when she, for the second time, visited Northern Sun recently. I, as a long time customer, know both owners of this particularly nice gallery shop and have respect not only for their good taste and smart business sense but also, for the warmth and the interest they show in their customer's lives and even their well-being. I don't believe that the owners, who are lovely people, would intentionally be insulting to anyone. The very idea seems ridiculous and it doesn't make sense that they (he) would intentionally alienate a customer for any reason. My interpretation is that an unfortunate misunderstanding took place and should the customer choose to return, all would be well.
As for The Northern Sun, it's one of the very best gallery shops in the province and one of the best anywhere I've traveled. (and I've been around!)
