Crystal Joys is filled with fun unique items. The best part of those unique items are the ones that are “Handmade with Love”. Knowing that you are buying a piece that was made in store by individuals who work hard to complete items they never thought they could make or complete, and giving them a sense of pride and ownership of their work is a great feeling. Each piece is indeed made with love, and each has its own unique touch.
