Jewellery Store
“I've had the honor of being part of Artisan's since 2002, and it's a team project of creativity, fun, and talent. Amy Witmer manages, and we have a family of colleagues and community who make this possible. Looks like a gift shop. Really, it's an excuse for a great deal more. Fun, colorful, artsy (ask us about our local artists!) and featuring everything from fine and artistic jewelry, to apparel, accessories, gourmet foods, gifts for the home and garden, soaps, lotions and candles, layette and much more! Come Play! ”
