    The store has some really nice glass pieces inside. You can also make something yourself along with a staff member. Definitely fun!  more »

    Great concept and was alot of fun to see the glass blowing right in front of us. Would recommend taking a peak.  more »

    We were given a "glass blowing experience" for a gift and went with no expectations. It was fun with good instructions and, given the obvious risks of having novices in close proximity with molten sil...  more »

    So many beautiful pieces being sold there and if you take a walk in class, you end up with a beautiful piece that you made yourself. I never ever write reviews but: Despite all that, I'm giving it 2 stars because my husband and my friend and I think the prices were a little much. Every little thing added up. I made a bubble which was shaped into a vase. I had to pay extra for each color (kind of understandable but not for $7.50 per color), pay for each twist of color (another $7.50), and then I had to pay for the flattening of the vase bottom ($10! For just taking a wood paddle and putting up against the hot glass). The bubble sizes are small, large, and XL. My friend chose a small and I chose a large upon the suggestion of the glass blower so my design would show better. HERE'S WHAT IRKED ME ENOUGH TO WANT TO GIVE A ONE STAR REVIEW: my large bubble turned out to be $68 PLUS tax. My friend's small bubble was $48 plus tax. When picking up the pieces, my friend's small vase and my large vase were the same size. So I just paid like $30 (if you include the tax) extra for the same size piece. Very very upset about the prices. Although the pieces did turn out beautifully....not worth the money.

    While we did not purchase anything, getting to see them blow glass right in front of you is mesmerizing. Just wish their prices were a bit more affordable.

    Such a fun place to shop and/or watch the magic happen. They make everything there which is always a treat. They also host home school groups and scouts

    I had so much fun learning about the glass blowing process from Nick and making a vase. I'll be back soon with friends! #luvhotsand
