Want To Help?

We have found that their are three main ways people like to help us out: 1)Their time (volunteering), 2) Their knowledge (we are always open to suggestions) and 3) Money.

If you are interested in volunteering, feel to stop by the shop and talk to either Randy or Jeremy. We tend to use our volunteers the most on Fridays and Saturdays. Also if you have any suggestions to help us improve, feel free to contact us.

We are always very appreciative of donations to the shop. If it wasn’t for our generous donors, we would not be here today. There are several ways to help us out financially.

You can always come in and purchase some art. Not only are you helping us out, but you are also supporting a local artist. The artists that we represent believe in our mission and tend to be very generous with their consignment agreements with us.

We also are always happy to except donations. We are in the process of setting up a way for you to make donations online. You can always contact us at the shop and we can talk to you about payment options.

- Light bulbs (we would like to start putting in LED bulbs in the shop)
