“Hooking Is An Art...”
Reviewed 21 August 2016

Our B&B host recommended that we stop at Flora's as we drove the Cabot Trail. Flora's has a great selection of local crafts, especially hooked rugs and other items. While in the shop, there was a local "hooker" working on her craft. The shop is a great mix of the trinkets and t-shirts that you would expect from a local souvenir shop, as well as locally made gifts. We easily spent an hour browsing their selections. This is a nice stop for a short break before you hit the park.

“Mid sized gift shop just outside of Cheticamp”
Reviewed 18 August 2016

My wife loves gift shops and she was interested in getting a hooked rug tapestry while in Cheticamp. These items are particular to this area. Flora's had a good selection and their prices were reasonable compared to other shops in the area. They also have all of the normal trinkets you would expect in a gift shop. There is an ice cream store onsite that got a lot of activity. It is a normal stop for tour buses going through town.

“Stop to visit the "hookers" - rug hookers that is....”
Reviewed 13 August 2016

This was a great stop on our bus tour of Cape Breton. This is a great gift shop, ice cream parlor and coffee counter. Nice selection of local crafts and a chance to see the "hookers" work to make their beautiful rugs and other hooked crafts. A perfect stop in Cheticamp!
