Not my cup of tea, but the glass work was very unusual and expert quality for fair prices. And I enjoyed a nice conversation with the gal working there which always increases the enjoyment.

It's inspiring to visit their gorgeous gallery. Well worth hitting the brakes next time you're passing through Waitsfield Village as they are on Rt 100. David and Melanie are extremely talented and their work is on a level much higher than what is found at...More

Very friendly owner, left us to look around in peace. The store is filled with beautiful unique glass. We were able to watch the glass blower at work from an upstairs seating area. Definitely worth a visit

We give the Gallery rave reviews. We purchased a large bowl for a center piece on our dining room table along with candle sticks. Well worth the time to visit.

Try to find out when it's open studio weekend, because many of the artisans will open the studios and allow tours of their workplaces. We took a tour of this glass gallery, saw all their works in progress, the hot holes where glass is melted,...More

We came there right when they were finishing for the day. They let us watch the final piece being formed. They are very talented and friendly. The gallery has a lot of unique pieces.
