A favourite pastime of ours is to spend an afternoon (or a whole day) browsing the many craft stores and galleries in the area. In fact, many locals from nearby towns, like Deer Lake and Corner Brook, often make the drive to Woody Point for the day to find one-of-a-kind, handcrafted items.
In Woody Point, park at one end of Water Street and walk down the flat, shore side lane and visit an array of craft and gift stores and cafes. Or, walk from Curzon Chalets to Water Street, it’s about 10-15 minutes, you’ll even pass by the Woody Point Lighthouse.
The shops are full of locally made souvenirs such as paintings, hand knitted goods, assorted pottery, stained glass, jewelry, quilts, jams, baked goods, soaps, books, hooked mats, and so much more! Some of the artisans even do demonstrations and workshops.
Here are some of our favourite, not-to-be-missed shops and galleries in the area:
- Molly Made Fibre Art Studio
- Christine Koch Studio
- Art Gallery at the Parks Canada Discovery Centre
- Galliott Studios
- The Hunky Dory
- Pic A Tenerife Crafts
- Jersey Room Craft Shop, located below The Old Loft Restaurant
- Middle Brook Craft Shop
- The Sample Room
- Seaside Gift Shop
- Bonne Bay Market
There’s more in Trout River. Take the 20-minute drive from Woody Point to Trout River. We promise you'll enjoy the scenic drive through the rust-coloured Tablelands. Once in Trout River, walk along the boardwalk to rustic crafts shops. May we suggest lunch or dinner at the award-winning Seaside Restaurant? It’s always a hit with seafood lovers.
