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.

Love the new clothes at The Gloucester Shop of Cape Ann

Love the clothes at The Gloucester Shop of Cape Ann, 48 Main Street, Gloucester, MA  01930, 978-282-3227.  Here are a couple of photos of the clothes. I actually bought a couple of the outfits.  The dresses are so cute and love the skirts, tee shirts, pants, and jewelry.  Come on down and take a look.

More of Mermaid Tales

What a wonderful time I had yesterday at the Grand Opening of Mermaid Tales.  Lourie the owner and her staff was so fun and attentive.  Lourie actually gave me a little gift bag.  This shop is next to Walgreens, it used to be Sadie Greens.  Her inventory is fun and you can find great gifts for others and yourself.

Manchester by the Shop – Mimi

Mimi is an artist driven gift, jewelry and fine art store located at 19 Central Street in Manchester. It was started in Ipswich in the summer of 2007 with locations in Ipswich and a bit later Manchester. Having closed the Ipswich store about three years ago Manchester has become their flagship store.

Co-founders Mia Nehme and her daughter Claudia Bowman say that they search for gifts and fine art that are made or designed by artists, and they feature the work of several local painters and artisan gifts. In addition they carry glassware, silverware, scarfs, by several vendors including Ekelund, Simon Pearce, Le Jaquard Francais, Mariposa and more. Then there is an extensive selection of jewelry.

In the having something for everyone department, Mimi has gifts from $10.oo on up, Yankee Swap gifts to art work and gifts for very special occasions.  For men they have created a “Man Cave” at the back of the store where they sell primarily shaving and smoking items.(Actually the “Cave” is a nice display case).  They have a jewelry selection with pieces from various local artists. Aron Leaman of Gloucester, a artist who works in glass produced a number of glass globes with actual Singing Beach Sand inside. Mia highlights this to say that because they deal directly with many of the artists special orders even with design changes on some items can be requested.

From time to time Mimi holds special events in which their customers are invited to hear from, see and learn about particular vendors or artists work.

Mimi’s website is at http://www.mimigiftgallery.com, the store is at 19 Central Street just across the street from the Town Hall.  Check them out!
