This shop has some unique silver jewelry and beautifully crafted Scandinavian items. It is a required visit for us when we're on a North Shore tour.

Brad's creativity and expertise with silver and gold are incredible. The prices on his artwork are extremely reasonable. His whole compound of buildings is so charming. They were constructed by Brad and he carved all the architectural embellishments as well. Adding to this ambiance is his friendly and helpful demeanor. A great stop for your North Shore travels.
