Stock up... and not just for yourself!

We are thankful everyday for our customers. Both near and far you are wonderfully loyal! Not to mention, when we get some great ideas directly from you, well, that just butters our biscuit!

Amidst the rain, wind and construction, we had a lovely lady stop in downtown and what she said was a brilliant idea, and heartwarming as well.

She only comes up maybe twice a year, but when she is in town she makes sure to stop by. When she is in the store, besides being inspired, she finds fun and unique gifts that she brings home and holds onto until the right event, and she has the perfect gift set and ready to give! What a great idea! How many of us get caught off guard by that birthday or anniversary that we were sure we were going to remember? Having a gift at the ready that you know will be charming, and perfect for the recipient is reassuring and frankly, a little more personal than a gift card… Don’t get me wrong, an Art in the Alley gift card is perfect for EVERY woman, but sometimes we all would like to give someone something they wouldn’t expect. Something as unique as they are. You can find just that in our stores.

And hey, the old, “one for them, one for me” adage is never a bad idea either. Get a gift that’s perfect for yourself while you’re at it!
