Reviewed 5 October 2016 via mobile

I was very excited to go here after it was recommended by people we had met, especially for hooked rugs. I don't know if it is just because it is near the end of the season, but the hooked rug selection was small and not very interesting and the rest of the merchandise is regular roadside gift shop tshirts etc.

If you want hooked rugs, pass up here and go to "Proud to be Hookers" about 15 minutes away in Petit Etang. The owner there is friendly and the selection is huge!

“Very under whelming”
Reviewed 6 September 2016 via mobile

We were excited to stop at this gift shop after reading the brochure and the fact that Chatelaine had rated it as the number one Gift shop. While there were some items available by artisans such as hooked rugs and a woman demonstrating how they were made, most of the items were things I'd typically see at a gift shop stamped with the name of the locale and fled with items that represent the area. This was not an artisan shop and we saw many other shops where items were originals and authentic with true artists. There was an ice cream shop attached to the gift shop.

“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.
