Welcome to this week’s


In times like these, I think back to all the wonderful artists who created in times of crisis or suffering and see what beauty and inspiration they brought to all of us. Let’s add our own mark on history with what we create during this time.
Our heartfelt thanks to those of you who have sent in images of your art –  please keep doing so!


Please read the following to be apart of our next “virtual exhibit”:

* When you send images, PLEASE don’t reply to this e-mail
It is a “DoNotReply” e-mail, and images just won’t attach.  Don’t know why, but they don’t.  (Super frustrating for us!)
E-mail your images to  Also, use this same e-mail if you are placing an order. And it’s so helpful if you include your name and the word “order” in the subject line.  If you have questions, please call us during CURBSIDE pick-up times (Mon – Fri, 9am-1pm) at 805-747-4200.

Thank you for the poster paint, my bosses love the flowers and I loved trying something different! Thanks again!”

Let’s hear it for local small business!

We all have to change the way we do things – it’s hard to stay informed on who is open and who is doing what – we get lots of people asking if we are open… we are!

We are still offering special orders.  If we don’t have it, we will try to get it for you!
