High quality goods, staff is helpful, you don't gave to fight for a little discount if you buy in bulk. Owner George is helpful, friendly, and conveys honesty. Very professional shop, better than the other nativity set vendors nearby.

Highly recommend this shop for nicer quality gifts, in particular the superb selection of olive wood carvings, and a variety of jewelry. The shopping experience was no-pressure and hassle free. George and his staff were most friendly and courteous, a real pleasure to deal with.
