Such a cute little authentic gift shop. We asked for directions to it, and some local fishermen told us it was ``3 pole-ends past the restaurant`` which meant it was 3 power poles past the restaurant! I love local lingo :-)

The Newfoundland tourist material portray Herbie's as a general store. We love to explore such places as well as original hardware stores, etc. They are kinda like museums. In this case, it is a small room loaded with local crafts. However, having said that, we...More

Local crafts by locals owned by locals. IF you haven't heard enough Newfoundland twang and words ( no disrespect meant ) then you will hear it in here!! Lots of hand made items and almost museum decorations.

A very well appointed shop filled to the brim with locally made crafts. A former grocery store and the nice lady behind the cash regaled us with some pleasant stories from the region.

A very small shop, but chock full of crafts and gifts made by true Newfoundland artisans. An especially good selection of earrings. Proprietor is informative and friendly. You may take some time to find parking in a town lacking parking facilities, but worth the trouble.
