We were looking for a gift for a friend and this shop has a great range of more unusual gifts. Good quality and not overpriced. Worth a look if you're stuck for ideas

Enjoyed seeing the amalgam of artworks in both ceramics and bronze!! Nice pieces of jewellery, some by budding artists. The assistant in the Gallery was very knowledgeable, and obviously loved the pieces she worked amongst. The Christmas pieces were nicely presented, very appealing!
