Take a stroll down any main street of any town across Newfoundland and Labrador and you're bound to find something that's one of a kind. For the past 500 years, we've used our inventiveness and curiosity to create the most unique arts and crafts – everything from fine art to hooked rugs to elegant stoneware pottery that reflects the land and sea that surrounds us. You can view hooked mat products at Placentia West Craft Shop on Burin Peninsula Highway, Molly Made Fiber Studio in Woody Point, Five Island Gallery in Tors Cove, and Whalers Gifts and Design in Red Bay. For pottery products stop by the Alexis Templeton Studio at the foot of Signal Hill in St. John's or King's Point Pottery in the Central region.

Newfoundland and Labrador is also home to Labradorite – a truly fascinating and exotic mineral – that's used in everything from delicate jewellery to large platters to coasters, all handcrafted by local artisans. You can view Labradorite products by visiting Labrador Straits Crafts in L'Anse-Amour and Meyer's Minerals in Pasadena.

Other popular crafts are sculptures and carvings created from a range of natural materials. Find beautifully crafted wooden bowls, spoons, and cutting boards made from local trees. You can view works from Kevin Coates in Winterton, the Grumpy Goat Gallery in Upper Island Cove and Drum Dancer in Happy Valley Goose Bay.

For something really rare, shop in one of our many quaint, little towns across the province. Like The Birches Gallery for carvings in Happy Valley-Goose Bay, Norton's Cove Studio for prints and textile art in Brookfield, By the Bay Museum Craft Shop for handmade quilts in Lewisporte and the Twillingate Museum for hooked rugs in Twillingate. Chat with friendly strangers, check out paintings by local artists, and have a quick bite at the Dock Marina Restaurant and Gallery in Trinity.

The tiny seaside town of King’s Point in Green Bay houses an award-winning pottery business – King’s Point Pottery. Their salt and soda glazed wares are world class, and their shop sells top-notch ceramics and crafts by other talented artisans from around the province.

The Quidi Vidi Plantation in Quidi Vidi village is a craft incubator. Immerging craftspeople are learning the art of business, as well as perfecting their techniques in a supportive environment. Drop by for a chat.

Go for a jaunt and check out the local shops and galleries along Water Street – the oldest street in the oldest city in North America. Stop by NONIA for exquisite handknit clothing like sweaters and hats in all sorts of designs. Or pick up a local album at Fred's Records on Duckworth Street. Window shop your way in and out of colourful clapboard boutiques and eateries scattered along quirky, vibrant downtown streets. As well as offering plenty of shops – from traditional to funky/contemporary – which are perfect for gifts, you'll also be tempted to buy for yourself, particularly when it comes to clothing. Flirt with budget-friendly vintage and locally created fashions, as well as higher-end, cutting edge, designer trends.

There's always one of our Historic Sites Heritage Shops of Newfoundland and Labrador in which to pick up local items, including Dark Tickle Jams and Jelly Bean Row Houses. Or venture to Bidgood's, in the Goulds area of St. John's, to find many local delicacies and a large selection of traditional foods.
