We visit this store every time we visit Banff . They care a variety of Canadian products with lots of creativity. Value reasonable and there is even usually a couple of sales on some items. Nice selection of Northwest Indian jewelry from BC.

The stuff here may be a bit pricier but it is all beautiful and unique. I love that many of the artists are local.

Bought a rustic metal bear sculpture here for $35. Drooled over a large metal sculpture of the forest. Lovely prints of all styles. Beautiful paintings. Jewelry...a great selection of quality merchandise that is definitely worth a look!

This is a great spot if you are looking for great local art without the gallery prices. I bought two large metal animal sculptures. Staff is so friendly and helpful. The selection of stuff is awesome. Highly recommend everyone stopping by if you are looking for a quality piece to remember your trip to Banff.
