If you didn’t already know, the shop is open for business as of last week! We’ve got all new windows, and we also took advantage of the time we were closed to put on some fresh paint & redecorate a bit! We love the fresh space and we’re sure you will too.
We are back to business as usual, but we also have a lot of travel & events going on this summer. Many of our artists will be traveling or on vacation, so read below to find out when your favorite artist might be out of town.
