Do the mural walking tour!
Mar 2021
Did the St. Pete Mural Walking Tour and loved it!! We met our tour group (10 person max) and guide, Greg (who was great!), at the Florida CraftArt center in the Central Arts District. The tour lasts about 1.5 hours and costs $19 (well worth it). The tour was fascinating - I really enjoyed learning about the artists and the meaning behind the murals. Greg was very knowledgeable and personable. I definitely recommend this tour! I enjoyed it so much that I plan to do the mural biking tour, too!

Fantastic place to go to find that perfect gift for a special someone!
Feb 2020
Whenever I am in St Pete I stop in here for their everchanging array of beautiful and varied works of art and crafts by local Florida artists! I have never been disappointed! I can find a little something under $10 for a stocking present, or a really stunning gift for someone close. We were in St Pete for dinner last night and I was very disappointed that we arrived after they'd closed...that's how much I love this shop!

Beautiful Art to buy
Jan 2020
Every time I visit St Pete I love to visit Florida Craft Art. They have an amazing amount of talented artists and a great selection to choose from. I have bought numerous things from FCA and I love it when the upstairs studios are open and we get to meet the artists!

Wonderful Shop That Summarizes St. Petersburg Art At Reasonable Prices!
Oct 2019
I love this shop! It truly is a hidden gem that is a fantastic place to provide REAL souvenirs of St. Petersburg, Florida's vivid and growing art scene. It is hidden on a corner location; inside you'll find works of art by local artisans ranging in price from the thousands of dollars to earrings costing $20 by local artist Eric Folsom, who lives in my own hometown of artsy Gulfport. Great place to buy gifts and personal, from the heart objects and memories of St. Petersburg at a range of prices, and very helpful and knowledgeable staff. Also in the heart of the Arts District itself! A must see!

Don't miss the mural tour
Dec 2019
We took the Saturday morning mural tour and cannot think of a way it could have been any better. We did not make an advance reservation, but the CraftArt staffer kindly let us join the tour. Our guide @artbyjamese did a great job with our large group. In his easy-going manner, James educated us about the various types of street art, covered the different painting techniques, told us about many of the artists and pointed out things we surely would have missed on our own. Our tour was an easy stroll within a few blocks of Florida CraftArt. After the tour, we were able to better enjoy the multitude of murals in St. Petersburg and were pleased when we correctly identified the work of some of the artists.

We have driven by this gallery so many times we should stop and today we did experience the gallery for the first time. What a great, great place and we highly recommend visiting here. Such diverse art and worth spending some time checking out every piece of art work
