Last fall Grand Rapids received a wonderful gift : Hillery Sproatt!  Hillery came to town and wowed us with her nail paintings, embroidered dolls, and positive spirit.  Every Saturday at the shop Hillery paints nails from 2-5pm.  Not just any kind of nail painting though, tiny masterpieces right up to your cuticles nail paintings.

IN THE SHOP : DOUG JOHNSTON

In the shop we put a huge emphasis on supporting local artists and crafters – some as close as out basement and many who also live along the same avenue as the shop.  But part of my goal of owning a shop is to bring the work of makers all over the country to Grand Rapids, a place that often doesn’t have great representation of national & international handmade artisans.

Last week we added the work of Brooklyn based artist Doug Johnston.  Doug works with his wife Tomoe Matsuoka and a small team of artists to create beautiful & functional objects out of coiled ropes.  Doug’s work spans across many more mediums including photography, performance, and installation work.  We’re excited to be carrying a wide variety of his baskets in the shop – from pencil buckets to trivets and deep baskets.  I’ve been using my trivet for my piles of garlic & ginger.
