    Took my grandson who is really into dinosaurs. Wow it was an amazing. Learned so much and experienced so much. You get to actually hold the fossils and see how they actually work on the fossils and at the end you get yo go work on some fossils - really cool.

    I think this store might be haunted, which made my visit extra special! Within apporox 30 minutes, on three occasions in three separate sections (but all on the lower floor) books popped off the shelf and landed at my feet. It's difficult to explain, but they didn't simply slide off, they popped off, as though pushed, and without my having touched them. One landed between another person and me, and we both looked at each other confused. I eventually saw a forth book pop off the shelf and a staff member stopped to pick it up and I told her what I had seen. She said I wasn't the first person to tell them that, and that staff regularly saw this occur when the store was closed.

    I'm not sure if I believe in ghosts, but I found the possibility of one helping with my reading selection really added to my experience at this wonderful store! I can't wait until I can return to see if it happens again!

    Friendly enough staff that were present, willing to help out, but at the same time not hovering over you while you shopped. Wonderful feel to Munro’s, as noted before, it feels a bit like a museum. It’s a heck of s feeling. The prices were reasonable, the selection was solid. A great vibe to support, local over big box! I highly encourage you to try Munro’s while downtown Victoria!

    Was walking through the Empress hotel, really with the purpose of find good boutique shops. Went in Stones Jewelry. Greeted but left to our own. Found a beautiful gold and diamond tennis bracelet, Different than the typical tennis bracelet. It was too long for my wife so the manager made the excess into nice earrings. shipped to us in Florida overnight. Would do business again with them in a flash.

    The BEST EVER Customer Service! Very friendly, helpful, informative and very good at what they do! I got a hat which I Did Not purchase there and I needed it stretched and formed a bit. I got it from Florida. Hard to find. NO PROBLEM! They did the work quickly with no problem. Very Friendly and informative. She listened to what I wanted and did the job perfectly! Thank you to the young lady who did the work on my "Marshall Hat" (Like the one on "Justified" that Timothy Oliphant wears.)

    My husband and I popped in here and we’re made to feel so welcomed. The staff are all really friendly and you can tell how much they enjoy where they work with the enthusiasm they gave. The place has just moved to a new location a couple of months ago so the museum isn’t up and running yet but it’s well worth a visit.

    My 10 yr old granddaughter quite enjoyed it. We spent an hour in there & she bought herself a treat. There was some ”nostalgia” products that I got for my brothers & sisters. We also found a Harry Potter candy gift, for another granddaughter. Friendly service!!!

    Sometime ago we bought a very large Inuit painting. Michael installed it for us in a very steep stairwell in our house. We discovered that there was so much reflection on the glass from the outdoors we had him change it to a matte plastic, which greatly improved the viewing of the work. When we downsized from a house to a condo, we hired Michael to move several large artworks. It was really worth it to have him pack and move the work rather than use general movers. We also hired him to evaluate all of our art for insurance purposes -- again worth every penny. We also bought a very nice sculpture from him. Michael has been just great -- so knowledgeable and trustworthy. Highly recommended!

    I discovered this lovely needlework shop a few years ago, by fluke, while roaming near Trounce Alley in Victoria. The shop has 2 entrances, and I discovered the back one. I adore buttons, and I purchased a few special ones at that time. On this trip, I returned for my new passion, cross stitch kits! Since Covid lockdown, when I tried cross stitch, I've suddenly developed a love for this new hobby. It keeps me very relaxed in our troublesome world. This shop has a variety of kits and I purchased a cute Scotties and Westies Needle Case, made in Scotland, for $20.95. The owners told me they are hanging on by a thread, due to the Covid situation for the past 3 years, and they nearly closed, and they might still have to close. So please VISIT THIS SHOP and you won't regret it!

    The pieces they carry are the real deal. Handcrafted by local (BC) artists. Stunning, beautiful and unique.

    I stopped by the Bee hive looking for a pair of needles for a beginner knitting project, but came away with much more. Jackie, one of the employees, answered the many questions that I had about my project, providing expert advice, suggestions, even printing out a pattern for me. She easily spent over 20 minutes with me and truly went above and beyond. I came away feeling more confident about my project, armed with the proper ‘tools’ and ideas to get off on the right foot. I will definitely be back and would recommend this shop to any knitter/crocheter out there.

    I have been smoking cigars from the age of 25 and tried and smoked very possible cigar on God's green earth. I tried and purchased from many vendors over this time only to be let down by product or service. Aemon and the staff are a real class act. The service is top notch, knowledge base is second to no body. I have purchased product from them in person and online. Both experiences were excellent. I am going on year 3 buying online and have not been disappointed in anyway. If want a great cigar accompanied by service and knowledge base visit this shop. Franco from Quebec, Canada

    I took a day trip to Victoria from Vancouver by coach. I had walked to Craigdarroch Castle from the drop off point and on the way back into town I saw this antique store and decided I could get rid of my Canadian dollar as I was going back to Los Angeles the next day. There were some really good items at great prices. I saw an armoire that I would have loved to have bought but how to get it home, so I settled on an oval pink depression glass plate.

    Stop in this shop the next time you are in Victoria B.C.
