Do any of you remember my very first blog? I still laugh when I see it – & I still think I’m at least a bit nuts to do this.
Anyone in the art supply business will tell you that you’ll never get rich selling art supplies – so you either have to have a passion for the products, or you have to be a wee bit insane. In my case, I’d say both are true. It’s been a wild ride so far, that’s for sure.
The funny thing is, when I opened in February 2011, I thought I knew most of the artists who live in our area… WRONG!
I’ve met such incredibly talented, warm, generous people in the last 7 years. You have enhanced my life.
This Saturday is my way of saying thank you, and celebrating what you’ve given me. I feel like Art Central really has become a part of the community, and it’s because you believe in what we are trying to achieve.
Thanks are due in no small part to my incredible staff – wonderful talented people in their own right, and patient as anything to deal with me every day. Will, Melissa, Shauna, Kate – I appreciate you so much.
And thanks to our wonderful manufacturers and distributors who graciously give us amazing supplies for our gift bags and our play stations. We appreciate your generosity!
etty, you are amazing! I read your newsletters, and I’m sorry I don’t get down to SLO to see you and your store more often. Congratulations on your achievement, and for bringing such a wonderful space to SLO! Much love to you, Julie :))
Thank you dear Etty for coming to our SLO Town! Am I ever grateful to you dear friend! Kath

Thank you Etty for all you do and are to us Artists. I’m grateful for you, your staff and your store. I love to buy local and you all offer that wonderful opportunity. Congratulations on you seven years of success. Bless you all.
Oh my goodness! Yes, it is the other way around. Imagine life without Art Central!
Etty, you have it backwards, YOU have enriched our lives. Thank you.
That was so nicely said. Your love and gratitude really came through this email.
I’ll see you Saturday morning. Remind me… what time do you want me there for pastel product play?
My thanks to you for giving us a local art supply business. I’m very glad you do this, and I love the genuinely warm welcome I get whenever I come through your door. You consistently make me feel special.
