That New-Art Smell is here!

Featured

Regardless of what is going on around me in the world or our lives, we try to keep the doors open to new artists with intriguing ideas and creations.  These past few months we’ve brought in these terrific new folks; we hope you can come see their work soon.

(Also we have new work by our OTHER 85 local artists!  Yesterday we received a neat bunch of adjustable rings and man-worthy pendant necklaces by Lynda Sparks.)

Shiny, Fun Stuff to Do and See!

Mother’s Day is officially behind us – and we had so much fun feteing our vendors and the many customers who have become fans and collectors of their work and of our shop.  As someone in politics once said, ‘it takes a village!’ but I wish to add, ‘momentum = time + perserverence + mass of awesome sauce!’  Which is to say-  we’re hitting our stride.  And we’re always trying to stay one step ahead with new surprises in everything from classes and events as well as artisans – so do please add yourself to our mailing list if you haven’t yet, and follow us on Facebook and Instagram (chris_makers_connect)

Here’s a taste of something we’re getting excited about coming up – hope you can make it out!
