This truly is a must see shop. These are gorgeous unique wood bowels. My parents bought some 17yrs ago when we were there and they are still like new. So this trip I bought my own wood bowel for my house. So hard to decide...More

Hand made bowls and many other items are available here, a nice variety of wood items as well as food. It's worth a stop to look.

Purchased a couple of the etched bowls. Very pretty for displaying. They also offer several other items that would be a great souvenir.

If you're able to observe them making the bowls, this is an interesting place to visit. It is basically a souvenir shop but worth going to. It tends to be on the expensive side however.

Very nice shop; staff was great and friendly. It was interesting watching the laser burning the designs. The prices were good-high enough to make it special but not too high that you wouldn't buy something.

I saw alot of advertising so I wanted to stop here. The parking lot was full of holes and mud. The bowls are very expensive. They had a few other souvenir items but they were pricey as well. I recommend skipping this stop!
