“good gift shopping”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 December 2013

An above average range of unique or unusual things that go well beyond the category of souvenirs. The Crafts Council is an important component of the arts and design scenes in Britain, and they do a good job of getting their members' work into the public eye.

“Plenty of Choice.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2013

Quite a big shop and a lot of interesting items for sale. However, many items were very expensive and we were looking for replicas of,say, Thomas A Beckett's reliquary, for example. Many goods were made in China too. There was nothing we wanted to buy.
