Puffin Craft Shop

Puffin Craft Shop

Elliston's Puffin Craft Shop (aka Puffin Souvenir Craft Shop) offers a unique collection of handmade items that are made locally - true cultural crafts. Take note of our large “Locally Made Crafts” sign placed proudly over our main door. If you are looking for mass produced items from factories overseas, we can't help you.

Specifically, we are located in scenic Maberly (part of Elliston, Newfoundland) and our craft store is one of those old fashion stores that you don’t see anymore. It has been built along the old style pattern of stores that once existed throughout Newfoundland. We do business the “old-fashioned” way. We are truly an off the grid operation with no electrical hook up or even a telephone line. Heating is provided by a mini wood stove. The store is primarily a “cash” business, but we can accept EMTs.

Our shop is family owned and operated with items handcrafted by local artisans (many with a focus on Puffins, of course). Here you will not find shelves filled with mass produced stuff commonly found at many places for souvenirs. Our view is that a Newfoundland souvenir should be from Newfoundland or better yet the actual community you are visiting. After all, buying a gift and looking on the reverse to see it was made thousands of miles away greatly diminishes your Newfoundland vacation experience.

If you would like to view some unique items during your visit to the Elliston area, it is a great place to go. Our GPS Coordinates are (48.619565, -53.015787).
