I really loved this shop which carries local art pieces ranging from cards to pottery to jewellery. The staff is very attentive and you will find something for everyone on your list! It is well situated in the heart of the town.

Fantastic custom made jewelry by Martina. Plus lots of other local gifts and items to choose from. All exhibit a very local taste. Be sure to ask Martina, or her wonderful staff, about the Dernish Island themed collection. There is also a gallery upstairs.

We enjoy shopping for locally made art and craft items on vacation. This shop has a nice selection and displays well. Worth a stop if you want something more than the usual touristy stuff that you can find anywhere.
