Holiday Gifts Created By Artists

We know that sales by big retailers, small local companies and online companies experience the lions share of their sales during Christmas/Hanukkah season. The kickoff of the season is “Black Friday” where companies offer deep discounts and customers clamor at their doors to be the first in line. Representing the overconsumption it is a frenzy I am happy to avoid.

The one start that does make me happy, ironically, was created by American Express in 2010 where they sponsored small business on the Saturday after “Black Friday” We are excited to take part in “Small Business Saturday“both  at our Gift Shop in Bethlehem, CT and our online store.

Our Gift Shop at 550 Gallery and Studios is not only a small business but our mission is to promote local artists and artisans.  Whether you visit our shop in person to browse exquisitely created gifts ( there is nothing like feeling a piece of woodwork in your hands ) or stop by our online stores we know you will find that special gift that we know you can’t find anywhere else.

If you can’t decide, we have gift certificates from $25.00 – $200 that can be used not only for items but also for classes or other events we offer.
