One of a Kind Exhibitor Since 1996
Working together for almost 20 years now, what we’ve most enjoyed is being able to combine our various creative talents in woodworking, design, and fine art to produce a wide variety of work that has ranged from home accessories to furniture and most recently, Patrick’s fine art photography.
Located in the centre aisle, this is the perfect meeting place to relax, and to treat yourself to a latte!
