After several months in the works, Arts Abound is very pleased to announce that we now have an e-commerce site. It is now easier than ever to support local artists and your favorite small business and get your holiday shopping done quickly and easily.
We can ship to you or save you a few dollars and do curbside pickup. There is quite a variety of handcrafted, unique items to choose from. New items will be added periodically so be sure to check back often.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO US!
This month marks our one-year anniversary of being in business. Without a doubt it has been an interesting year to start a small business! We have loved sharing our art with every customer who comes to the gallery. Arts Abound has also enjoyed meeting so many talented artists and having the opportunity to speak with them about their craft. Family has been very supportive in this new venture, as have friends such as Kathy, our fearless customer service representative, and Donna, our cheerleader/community outreach person. Meeting new customers and seeing old ones continues to be very gratifying. In this current and uncertain economic climate, it is critical to support our small local businesses if you want them to survive. Please remember Arts Abound when you need gifts for friends and family, or for yourself.
