Every shop is unique, tastefully displayed items to buy. For me, it is eye candy. Cannot leave without buying something in one of the shop, maybe a piece of costume jewelry, a bottle of wine, or a Christmas décor, the list goes on.

Contrary to the name, this is not a little store. It's an old house-turned shop filled with fun products. Each room has its own theme, with everything from clothing to snacks to house decorations. Good for both window shopping and actually making purchases.
