Such a lovely little find. I bought a lovely hand-painted puffin coaster and a hand-carved puffin keychain. Very charming! And friendly service too, by the woman who makes a lot of the knitted/crocheted products.

This was the best little craft store I have every visited! It was refreshing to find locally hand made crafts instead of the massed produced stuff you see in most stores. Love that Puffin Train too!!!!
