FAQ to the Future

Answers provided by our trusty Magic 8 Ball advisor (and approved by management)

Will gift certificates be honored? 
You may rely on it. 
Because Jim and Katy are super-duper cool, they will continue to honor your gift certificates!! We’ll still happily accept previously issued gift certificates at the shop and are working to implement a new system soon.  

Will the store stay in the same location?
Without a doubt.
It’s great to be downtown where the action is. With close, all-day, free parking, and amazing neighbors, we love our location in historic downtown Salem. 


Will the store be temporarily closed?
Signs point to yes. 
We’ll close the store for a short time for maintenance and to get systems up and running. We will update our schedule accordingly on social media and our website.

Will the hours change?
Yes – definitely. 
We will soon be open Tuesday - Sunday 10am - 5pm and close daily from 1-2pm for lunch and cleaning. Come welcome us and enjoy Sunday shopping!

Will there be a new website with online shopping?
Outlook good.
Great Scott! We are pumped for our new website that will have online shopping available. Stay tuned and sign up for our newsletter so we can let you know when online is open for shopping and shipping. 


Can we help celebrate Jim and Katy’s retirement? 
It is decidedly so.
I will post on social media for you to come into the store to drop off sketches or leave notes of well-wishes for Jim and Katy in our farewell book by Nov. 1st. Share your favorite memory of them, the store, or an event. We will then deliver the book to Jim and Katy in November. And we hope to see them in cameo appearances at the store. 

Will there be classes?
Without a doubt. 

1.21 Gigawatts!?! We are boosting our internet speed to bring classes and tutorials to you virtually. And we can’t wait until we can create with you in person. We have so much goodness planned. So did you sign up for our newsletter yet? 

Will you still carry my favorite art supply?
Yes – definitely. 
Don’t worry, we’ll keep you well-stocked.

Do you have anything fun planned for the upcoming holidays?
It is certain.
Halloween is just around the corner and we can’t wait to share costume and art inspiration. And we are adding a creative gift section with local artwork, stickers, books, zines, and more just in time for the holidays. Be sure to continue following us on Instagram and Facebook for fun give-a-aways and tidbits.
