Tons of unique pieces by a small family owned and operated glass blowing family. The only and last of its kind on the island of Crete. Worth the visit to see and buy some unique pieces!

Stop by this interesting shop, if you're in the area. Very cool to see all the unique vases, bowls, candle holders, etc... The location is off on TripAdvisor. I pinned it on google maps when we were there... http://goo.gl/maps/QiCJo Enjoy!

I don't know exactly but I have been there five times at different hours and seasons and it was never closed. They definitely don't have Siesta as many non touristic stores do.
