A new look

We've made a few nice changes for the Holidays.

We moved the cash register area into the corner,
to give even more room to show off the Christmas tree and all the Local art we have on display.

It's Quite lovely.

Canvas rack

I was trying to decide how to make the canvas rack that we have able to hold more canvas...
maybe even make it look nice...

After too much struggle, I remembered the phrase "you can't make a silk purse out of  a sow's ear",
and decided to put it out of it's misery. :)

Everything we have fits much more smoothly in this rack.
Ok  I'll admit the Really big stuff isn't in the rack, (and there is more canvas on the way), but we will always find room for more product!

Take a good look

Honestly, one reason we are taking so many lovely photos of the store,
is that we are looking to rearrange a few things.
We want to see what works, and make it even easier to find everything you need.

Check out our facebook page to answer the question:
What color would you paint an art store?
(The QUIZ is listed under the profile photo.)

I love stocking out product.

I know it sounds a bit silly...but when racks are empty, they look forlorn and toothless.
I love being able to restore a big toothy smile to the store.

Golden Acrylics restocked and Smiling!
Then there is the added benefit of being able to call customers, to let them know, that the special orders they requested have arrived.

For all the rules and info go to:

Almost a virtual tour

I wanted to show folks who haven't
 been in the store lately,
what to expect.

 A little bit of everything!

There's a lot of art - (ready to be made, for inspiration, & for sale) here!
Plus get ready to see more new products, artists services, events, and some rearranging in the future.

Morning Light in the store

The sunlight early this morning was really quite lovely.

Most people don't get to see how nice it looks to see the sun really shining on these yummy art makes them even more enticing.
