Cape Breton Island Shopping: 8 reviews and 16 photos
Many shops along the Cabot Trail offer the opportunity to see artists and crafts people at work. I've listed a few that we stopped at. The Cape Breton Artisan Trail Map gives you a complete list of the studios and workshops or you can pick up a brochure and map at many Tourist Information Center.
What to buy: Shape Shift Pottery, North River Bridge: Raku and stoneware located in an old school house.
Leather Works, Indian Brook: stunning leather works in beautiful colours.
Sew inclined: A really fun shop of one of a kind items including funky hats.
Silver Gull Gift Shop, Birch Plains: There's no workshop here, but some Cape Breton crafts like pottery, quilts, jewelery, as well as cheap souvenir type items.
Flora's, Chéticamp: Rugs hooked in the unique Chéticamp style. There is usually someone demonstrating this technique.
