Cute little store, which has art from local artists and shabby-chic sea-side style. The store was presented with a very welcoming sales person and they allow dogs inside. Very cute store with a lot of nice products to sell.

A lovely little find. Suzy has collected lots of "nice things" to sell. There's something for everyone here. She shows some great artwork by local artist Melanie Tong. Definitely worth a visit, just for the warm welcome you will receive from Suzy!
