Typical Old Town shop with lots of different art pieces from a wide range of local artists. Their prices are very reasonable for mid-art range pieces. Worth stopping in for a few minutes as you walk around Old Town.

A beautiful variety of items to choose from. All items are made by local artists. They carry a little of everything. Glassware. Household items. You will find something for those back home. The owners were very friendly and offered great advice for places to eat.
