  • I definitely recommend stopping here if you're in the area. They have lovely prints, a good selection of books from Newfoundland and Atlantic Canada, bookmarks, coasters, note cards... it's a small shop but everything in it is well chosen. There is also a printing press right in the shop, and the owner is very knowledgeable and friendly. A good place to go if you want a piece of Newfoundland art beyond all the usual tourist trinkets.
  • What a lovely shop! If you have any interest in art, books, or how things are made in general, this is a must-see place to visit. Loved learning about the print press and seeing some local art. We bought a sketch of a capelin and some Newfoundland Salt. Thanks for the lovely visit!
