About Us

I believe that by supporting our fine local artists we encourage their talent to blossom and find rewards sufficient enough to continue their work and thus share their talents with the world.

Art is not something to be stamped out in a factory and minimalized to supporting a sweatshop in some far way land. Artistry in our community should be supported  and encouraged lest we lose our craftsmen in the name of cheap imports and greater profits. Please take a moment to read the biographies of our artisans so that you know exactly who puts their love, care and skill into your gifts. 

My hope is that this gift store will be a blessing not only to your friends receiving such thoughtful gifts but to the many artists and worker bees involved in bringing this selection to you.
