A wonderful, small gallery with competitive prices. The advantage is the guarantee that local artists did the work (and beautiful work, too). Take the time to visit this shop.

The staff in the shop are rude and unfriendly. The 'art' is amateurish and overpriced. Avoid at all costs. Do not go here.
