Really friendly volunteer shop in aid of a very worthwhile cause, full of intriguing items suitable for souvenirs and gifts and some practical items too like a new ferrule for my tired old walking stick.

This shop is set out lovely with lots of interesting things to look at. The building itself is very old. Parking is difficult to find, we had to circle the block a few times until we found a spot close by as we had our 87 year old mother with us.

A nice little shop run by the National trust of Tasmania. Some items from the past on display and souvenirs also available. The volunteer ladies who run the shop are nice, friendly and helpful people .The shop is small so don't take your cat. Worth a look.
