Some nice quality good available in some nicely appointed stores. Look around before you buy The Art of Silver has a good collection. Some stores have staff who don't even acknowledge you when you walk in - we decided not to spend in these places as we consider this rude. Given the economic climate - a hello doesn't go astray if you want shoppers to spend.

Great place to spend an hour or so browsing local examples of art, photography and design. Very well organised and plenty of different types of art to see. Very reasonable prices and also a couple of great places for a snack or coffee.

Have a wander through the alleys here - pick up a souvenir of your stay, a bottle of Tassie wine and then have a beer in the square.

So much on offer here, a varied and interesting mix of local produce, crafts and quirky things. It was a really good shopping day.
