This a really nice place with unique and beautiful products. BUT it's so expansive! Go and take a look but I'm not sure you'll buy something.

This was our second trip to the islands, and we had to stop at Artisans du Sable again. Their products are very unique and beautifully done - and they make wonderful gifts for friends and family. A nice remembrance from les Iles de la Madeleine.
