The first day I stopped by they were closed (off-season) so I peered into the windows in awe. Opened a few days later and I made sure to be there. It is a joyful place...full of so much talent and beauty. Bought as much as I could afford and have my eye on a few more pieces of art. Don't miss this sublime shop.

Flight of Fancy is a long time landmark in Bear River. We live locally and have visited and shopped there many, many times over the past decades.

Dropped in a couple of weeks ago for the first time in ages. They still have absolutely beautiful art and high quality articles made by mostly local artisans.

The problem now is that prices have gone up so dramatically that they have priced themselves out of my budget as a pensioner. I used to do a lot of my Christmas shopping there each year. Couldn't do it now! All I bought this time was one postcard!!

There is still no doubt that those of means will continue to buy many of the beautiful pieces on offer at Flight of Fancy. For us it was, nevertheless, a nice visit and fun to look around!!

Many beautiful pieces of art to see. Although all available for purchase, they are pricey. Lovely to see all in one place.

A nicely done art store with a wide range of items from photos to paintings to pottery. If you are looking for nice authentic artist made items, give this place a try as you will probably find something. Even if you are not in the mood for buying anything, just view the artwork - some lovely things here.

Nice store/gallery with all sorts of lovely items--from jewelry to wood items to paintings. Staff person seemed knowledgeable about the artists represented. Worth a visit if you are going that way. Quality items for sale, but expensive.

Owner Rob Buckland took time to share some of the suburb pieces in the shop. There are paintings, carvings, photography, pottery, beautiful woodwork, a painting of the Titanic on a feather, bird paintings on rocks, blown glass, and metalwork. Take some time after shopping to view the Fundy tides and stroll down Clementsvale Road for an ice cream cone.
