This delightfully old-school shop sells handcrafted knitwear and accessories, alongside a host of locally-made artisanal crafts in Downtown Charlottetown.

All of the knitwear sold at this store is made on-site and visitors are welcome to watch the artisans at work. Made using old-fashioned looms, Northern Watters Knitwear boasts an old-world charm that is hard to resist. In a world where automation is par course, this store breaks the mold, making for a refreshing change.
