The Osokozi Gallery opened in 1992 in the 18th century cottage formerly called “Osokozi”.
The building had been the manse for the Primitive Methodist’s chapel next door, which closed in the 1930’s.
Osokozi stocks an eclectic mix of quality greeting cards, jewellery and interesting ethnic artefacts.
