Pytingin Puoti Shop is located next to manor house. It offers unique, high quality, Finnish handicraft. All products are designed and produced by a group of local artisans. Additionally, the shop and artisans offer workshops and shows to demonstrate both modern and traditional methods. Up in the attic of the shop you can also find the idyllic, Pytingin Vintti gallery space where rotating exhibitions are hosted.
