Buy from Us
Rural Newfoundlanders have a long and rich history of making things by hand; a creativity born of necessity. The successful opening of the Fogo Island Inn has reawakened an appreciation for this practice, igniting an economy of care, craft and culture.
Guests have been eager to purchase the products and furnishings that help make the Inn so unique. From the hand-made furniture to the quilts and cushions, everything possible has been made by local craftspeople and artisans in collaborations with contemporary designers. Each piece has been created to reflect the spirit and soul of traditional outport furniture. They marry the essentials of function and tradition with contemporary design to create one-of-a-kind pieces which fortify culture. These pieces are not available for purchase anywhere else in the world.
And when you visit us here on the Island, you will discover many local artists and artisans, some of which are featured at the Winds & Waves Guild.
