The gentleman was very helpful and had a great selection of wood crafts/ pottery/ and other items. The items we saw here were cheaper than in town and all the products are made from himself, or local partners.

We stopped by this wonderful wood art gallery. What brilliant wood art pieces, that are hand craved and we want to buy all of them. We bought a really wonderful wood craving that definitively represents the fabulous time we had.

Lots of HUGE wood sculptures that were cool to see. Other wood products for sale. Prices just slightly lower than beach vendors and stores. Enjoyed watching them use chain saws and other woodworking tools to make the wood items.
