If you're thinking about unique Cape Breton souvenir gifts that will be highly prized by the recipients, stop here. It's right on the Cabot Trail, they have good parking, there's no excuse. They have the most beautiful hooked rug products in every price range. Rug hooking is a form of folk art, and a truly historic, traditional craft for this region. We are so glad we stopped in here, as our gift and souvenir buying was done when we walked out. We don't know their seasonal hours, so consult the website if you're travelling off season. They were open early October when we were there.

Found this shop by chance as we were driving by. Bought two little hangings and then managed to get back just in time before Lola shut up shop for the night. On this second visit bought a beautiful larger piece hooked by Lola herself. This is now in a framing shop in Hertfordshire, England, to be framed. Shop is just full to bursting with brightly coloured hooked pieces in all sizes. I loved the idea of older local ladies carrying on the tradition of hooking over the winter months and keeping alive a craft which would otherwise disappear. Lola is friendly, amusing, and engages happily with customers. Framer in England was most impressed by how neat the back of the rug was! (You could just about hang it either way round, was his opinion.)

We absolutely were "hooked" by the name on the sign; Proud to be Hookers! I am also a crafter but I have never seen such fabulous work in all my life. It is worth stopping by to see their work.

We stopped here on our way out of Cheticamp before doing the Cape Breton Trail. What a wonderful place with amazing "hooked wool" gifts, pictures etc. Had a lovely chat with the owner and chief "hooker", it seems that this is a dying art which would be such a shame. We bought a couple of gifts to bring back for friends in England and i have to say they loved them. Well worth a visit if you are in the area.
