Cool Places to Shop

Country Crafts is only 30 minutes from the ferry terminal in Port aux Basques. The shop is inside the Grand Codroy RV Park. Just drive into the park and it's on your right.

Arlene carries the best selection of made-in-Newfoundland crafts that you'll find anywhere in the province. You're able to find keepsakes and gifts to fit any budget. Arlene is also a great source of information for neat places to visit from Rose Blanche to Port-au-Port.

Linda loves her hand knit Newfoundland slippers by Esther Keeping. I like the hand-made boats. I have one for myself and have purchased one for a gift.

Corner Brook is the home of the Newfoundland Emporium. It's a large multi-level store in downtown Corner Brook. They have a large eclectic collection of everything Newfoundland. In addition to crafts, you can browse through second hand books, antiques and collectibles. My find was a Joey Smallwood hologram. Newfoundland's first premier handed these out in an election campaign.

Pic a Tenerife is in the south side of Gros Morne National Park. It's on your left just as you are driving into Glenburnie. Their specialty is hand-made quilts. They also have a good selection of knitted items and other hand-made crafts.

Read our rug hooking blog for a couple of other shops we really like. Molly Made Fibre Art Studio is in Woody Point. We'd also recommend that you check out The Roost which is in York Harbour.


  1. You do a great job of exposing some of Newfoundlands "hidden treasures"...

    1. Thanks Arlene. The traffic on both the blog and the website have been increasing every month. See you in June!

  2. Wonderful post and lovely photos. Thank you so much for sharing, and warm greetings from Montreal, Canada. :)

    1. Hi Linda,
      Thanks for the kind words. Greetings from Labrador (at the moment).
