  • A lovely wee gem of a shop. If in the area or passing through I highly recommend you stop by, especially if looking for an alternative to the usual gifts. Very friendly and the glass ornaments are mostly all made there. Some were being made when we stopped in. Some amazing and unique pieces. Got quote a few things. 🙂
  • Great little shop. Very friendly and helpful staff and a brilliant assortment of handmade glass ornaments and jewellery.
  • A lovely shop full of local items and glass works. Some, like the iceicles we bought for our Christmas tree, are made on site.
  • Beautiful products and lovely friendly artist
  • Really enjoyed discovering this little gift shop. Lovely chatting to the owner while she worked on her craft. Beautiful gifts, glass and other local items. Not all of the glass pieces are made on site, but everything that isn't is clearly labelled. Bought a pipet for adding drops of water to whiskey 🥃.
