‪We visited the store twice within 2 days. The first time around, my partner was looking at her phone while we were browsing the store, and she was approached by the shopkeeper and told that she needed to put her phone away. We thought this was strange, but thought nothing of it and continued to browse. Anyway, we decided to go back the next day to buy one of the items they had for sale; a group of three hanging ‘things’ that we really liked. This time around, it was me that retrieved my phone from my pocket after receiving an email. I had forgotten the occurrence from the previous visit, and I also have a business to run, so I generally tend to read emails as soon as I receive them. The female shopkeeper literally came bouncing across the store preparing to spit her fire over me, to tell me that I had to put my phone away. I explained that I was just reading an email, but she didn’t care to listen. I immediately left the store and decided that I wasn’t going to support this business in the slightest. After stewing outside for a couple of minutes while I waited for my friends to exit the store, I decided to go back in to explain my shock to the shopkeeper. I told her quietly and discreetly that I was not made to feel welcome in the store, so I would not be purchasing the items that we came to buy. I was met with the response “we can’t make enough of these because they’re so popular, so we really don’t need your money”. I was so blown away by this response that my reaction was to laugh as I walked away, as I realised I’d have a more adult conversation with the pottery itself. As I was halfway to the exit, the woman literally shouted across the store “ITS ABOUT RESPECT” and every customer in the store turned to have a look at what was going on. The back of my head didn’t care, but I continued to laugh as I saw the confusion and shock on the other customers faces. Anyway, don’t visit this pretty looking store, it’s deceiving. Don’t be fooled by the arrangements in the window, it’s a hellhole inside, with its own angry old dragon. The funny thing is that the windows are not covered and the lights in the store are left on at night, so the attached picture was taken from the street this evening after walking past the store again. The picture is of the same product we were going to buy. Sucker!‬

‪The worst experience - horrible service‬
‪יולי 2019‬
‪Let me just warn you to start with, you’re not allowed to take a picture in this store, and the owners are, well .. I’ll make you finish that sentence. My brother in law took up his phone to answer a text, and immediately the female owner was ready to attack hissing that no pictures allowed. We asked what the problem was and this is what was shouted at us. “If this continues we need to move!” (Please do) “Sometimes people come in here with their video cameras!” And then the other owner, large male starts shouting aswell - “Just get out!” “We refuse to discuss this” All while we literally just stood there in shock. I said “In this time of age, everyone has their phone up” - and somehow they blew up again. They also state (check other reviews) that they don’t care about costumer service because they make enough money without it. Something like that. We were just in shock, and I just feel bad for their future clients. If you had similar experience, share it. This is just the worst thing I’ve ever experienced in my life. Stay away y’all - To the owners if they are reading this. Use your money (that you make so much of) and use it to hire someone (or maybe don’t, that would be really unfair to the person) and stay away from your clients. And put a HUGE sign outside of your store (they have a few small ones, really high up) where it says “NO PICTURES” (not phone, pictures) .. and if you move, just make a webshop, that’s the future anyway. Ok bye. ‬

‪The pottery was amazing, with fine arts and creativity to make you reflect over the pieces. The store clearly had signs that stated: “there were no photographs allowed”. We knew this on beforehand, as well, but the way they handled it was very unprofessional, and dare I say rude.

We were planning to buy a beautiful lamp (expensive one). Before buying it, we were looking at the time on our phones, and reading messages, before abruptly being scolded for using our phones whilst in the store. We explained to the shopkeeper that it was unpleasant to be scolded over something that would not happen, and they stood behind us through the whole time to make sure no photographs were taken. We were yelled at inside the store, and everyone there raised a brow. This was unexpected, handled poorly and we did not buy the lamp.

To finish this review off, I’ll leave the final quote from the shopkeeper itself;
“We make enough money on this business, so we do not need to sell it to you anyway”.‬

‪Here you can find a lot of handmade, local pottery and if you are interested in pottery you should have a look inside.‬

‪From the outside this shop might not look of much but venture inside and you will enter a very special world filled with art from a special and very skilled person. Many artist produce similar items but here you find an artist trying many different methods and succeed in doing so. I guess you will want to take something from his world with you home....‬
