Back-to-School in Style!


Get your books together, it's the best time of the year! Back to school time is here already, and we are getting excited...The summer flew by but now it is time for the leaves to fall, cozy drinks, and decorating your new spaces, your school supplies, and your empty desks!

We have a lot of brand new work in the gallery, this is a great time to stop in and see what kind art speaks to you. 

Feeling studious? Grab a hand-painted book, pin, sticker, or card... We have so many items big & small to fit your studious vibes this school season.

Wooden Folk Art Owl by Basil Doucette, Textile Owl mounted on book by Sharon Cave,  Story Books Acrylic on wood panel by Kristina Galic, pins, cards, bookmarks and stickers by various artists.

Need a break from all the back to school hard work? Grab a drink (poster or painting), cuddle up with a hot drink in one of our gorgeous ceramic mugs, and snuggle in with a "Couch Potatoe" or a "Greeb" the plushy screen printed and hand sewn art friend! 
We also have fun stickers, buttons and creative goodies for you to relax, enjoy and recuperate your mind from all that pesky school work!
