Lots of unique quality souvenirs, gifts, local art, soy candles, bees wax candles, glassware, hand puppets, Reiner Ottomans and more! A gift for yourself or someone else we are sure you will find it here! We are so lucky to live in an area with such a wide selection of quality local artists. Artists have been drawn to the Bruce Peninsula for the inspiration found in the outdoors as well as the relaxed pace of life. The Dandy Lion is a place where local artisans can sell their art year round. Be sure to drop by and see what we have in store.”
