No# 1 shopping destination in the province!

Who is # 1 under "shopping"?

The other day a NL tourism operator dropped by our shop for the following reason: "According to Trip Advisor.com you (King's Point Pottery Fine Craft Gallery) are the number 1 shopping destination in Newfoundland and Labrador!"  Our reply "Whaaahoooieeee!!!!" Trip advisor rates travel destinations all around the world and to be rated number #1 here in NL is a real thrill. Thank you to everyone who likes what we are trying to do here and we will continue to try our utmost to bring you the very best in our specialty of fine handmade Atlantic Canadian craft! We invite you to drop by and see what's new and exciting at one of Newfoundland's best craft shops!

New from old Barrels arrive!!

"Yesterday", everything used to be sent in wooden packaging....barrels of fish, of salt, and of sugar. Today's, new shop product is not all about what was inside..rather it is thee outside, the container itself, the old barrels that are the centre of attention. These new products are all made from (recycled) barrels... into candleholders, wine bottle holders, serving trays, shelves...handsome real (used) hard working barrels turned into charming outport-functional housewares. Everything old is transformed into wonderfully new again...I just luv 'em! We invite you to drop by the King's Point Pottery Gallery and see the traditional old barrel totally reinvented for 2012. Oh and did I mention they are so affordable..with items starting at just $20.00!

Dark Tickle creates jams, jellies, teas,...and new types of chocolates...all of which have as a key ingredient
wild -untamed-au naturel-HANDPICKED Newfoundland and Labrador berries. The berry picking capital of Canada is most certainly Newfoundland and Labrador and one of the biggest producers with the most variety is Dark Tickle of the Great Northern Penninsula. Gwen, Steve & their son Kier run the handcrafted business that is also an "Economuseum"! We have a "wonderful grand" new selection of their unique wild food products here at the King's Point Pottery Fine Craft Gallery and Gifts. Why not "hand pick" something wild for yourself during your next visit?
