There are lots of gift shops on Cape Breton, most of which are worth a look-see. Take my word for it, though -- Arts North is a stand-out. This shop features many of the Island's most gifted artists and artisans, with enough selection to please anyone who might be on the look out for that extra special birthday or Christmas present.
The quality of goods is extremely high, and the prices are very reasonable. There are traditional offerings, from gorgeous delicately-knit wool socks and hand-painted pottery, to more contemporary silk scarves and smoked reed/alder baskets -- the latter being, for me, a show-stopper and something I will send on to my sister for consideration to carry in her Ottawa-area gift store.
