We are a small family owned business with a small shop in the very picturesque coastal town of Criccieth, North Wales. We sell Antiques & Collectables and also crafts which are made in our own workshop with some of our crafts available in various galleries in Wales. The business was started over 25 years ago in a village about twelve miles away but relocated to Criccieth in 2010. Our work is available on the internet and we are proud to say we have customers from all over the world.
 
Our small shop is a real Pandora's Attic full of interesting and unusual Antiques and Collectables. Our stock is ever changing so contact us if you are looking for something in particular. Our web pages are only a small collection of the vast range of items too numerous to list.‚Äč
 
We make and design semi-precious stone jewellery which is much appreciated because each piece is individually designed and yet we have managed to keep it at affordable prices. Because we make it ourselves we are able to make alterations to pieces for example lengthen or shorten a necklace. We also offer a rethreading/repair service. Specialise in commissioned pieces for weddings, special occasions or matching beads to a particular outfit.
 
Classes or 'sessions' for one or two in both jewellery and bag making are available - its more or less on a one to one basis so it's very individual and tailored to what you want to learn about.
 
Along with the jewellery we also make bags, cards and artwork. We have a special range of designer bags which are 'one offs' with the use of colours, textures and individuality being paramount. There's a range of bags using recycled vintage fabric and another range using traditional Welsh wool tapestry.
 
We sincerely hope that our small introduction here has been sufficient to whet your appetite to look at our online shop or even better come to Criccieth to visit our shop.
