A Little About Us

Updated: Mar 18

The Roost is a gift shop/ gallery located in beautiful York Harbour in The Bay of Islands. The three owners are artisans who create one of a kind items for sale.



Janis paints local landscapes and makes glass beads and jewellery. She has made special items upon request. Blake works with driftwood and sea glass from the local beaches to create decorative art and collectibles. He is also an accomplished rug hooker. Roy is a fibre artist who makes hooked mats and woven items.


We also have hand crafted items from across Newfoundland and an abundance of locally created items from our consignees. Our choices range from fine art to jewellery to quilts, knits, soap, carvings and functional items like tea towels, placemats and aprons.


In addition the view from our parking lot is unbeatable. We have Blow Me Down Mountain and Tortoise Mountain with Governor's Island in between in our backyard!
