New Site

We're so excited to have a new website up and running after almost a year in business! It's pretty simple for now, but we hope it will give you the flavor of the shop. We're in the process of building a webshop we'll add here soon, too, so stay tuned for that. In the meantime, if you see anything here that you're interested in knowing more about or purchasing, you can email or call the shop and we're happy to help. There's an option at the bottom of the homepage to sign up for our newsletters, which will keep you up to date on upcoming art openings, new items in the shop, and occasional sales. Thanks for visiting! 


Mother's Day

We've got lots of sweet gifts for Mother's Day - handmade ceramics, jewelry that won't break the bank, beautiful artist designed scarves, and many other goodies. And we've got you covered with not-your-typical-grocery-store-card-aisle small press Mother's Day cards ranging from personal and loving to funny and sarcastic. On Friday 5/12 and Saturday 5/13 we'll have fresh bouquets from my friend Beth at Floret available for purchase as well. And we gift wrap!
