We sent out this press release just last night. We hope our customers, vendors, and well-wishers will stop by often before and after the transition. It’s a very exciting time for us!
An Artful Transition – For Immediate Release
Makers Connect, a quirky family-run gift shop/gallery at Northwest Highway and Easton, has plans to hand over the reigns to another local East Dallas family in the new year, Lynda Sparks and Caleb Jack.
The shop, which has been open for nearly four years, brings in an eclectic blend of local artisan-made goods from over 80 North TX artisans, plus selected goods from other sources that relate to the whimsical and lighthearted vibe the store projects.
The new owners have plans to keep the ‘funky’ and ramp up the fine-art side, which only makes sense. Caleb has spent many years assisting the operation of Artisans Collective, one of Dallas’ most notable local-art galleries. Recently shuttered due to the gentrification of the Bishop Arts district, it’s his hope that many of those wonderful artists will find new space at “Makers Connect – the Art Annex,” while maintaining many of the current artisans in the mix.
Makers Connect, the First Edition, will run through Christmas with a number of unique events and classes! Come shop local and artistically in Dallas.
