Not closed, just moved.

Even though Glenna Kimball's downtown store has closed, her home art studio is open. The downtown store was doing quite well, but due to a large rent increase, she was forced to move. You can find Glenna's contact information here: http://www.glennaeclectic.com/ I HIGHLY suggest that make an appointment to visit her home art studio. Not only are her wares exceptionally beautiful, they are surprisingly affordable. Many handmade gift items for less than $20!!!

She also offers classes! I took one a private class in her art studio. I had one-on-one instruction and made a beautiful felted keepsake for an extremely reasonable price. If you're a crafter, you would love this experience! If you believe you're not artistically inclined, give it a shot anyway. You may surprise yourself. Glenna will be right there, guiding you each step of the way. The personalized art classes offered by Glenna would be ideal for a fun girls afternoon out or a mother-daughter day. For me, it was a unique and unforgettable activity on my drive up the coast. If you do decide to take a class, allow two hours.

Sorry to report...

When we returned to the northern CA coast this summer we found this unique establishment closed, actually no trace that it ever was there! It is definitely a loss and underscores the fragile nature of the local economy.
So! When out there on the road, please stop into the small, out-of-the-way and unusual businesses to not only lend them a helping hand but to enjoy different perspectives on art or food or whatever interests you.

Best Upcycled and Recycled Things

I stopped in US - Art 101 over a year ago and continue to think about all of the great recycled and upcycled creative, useful and super cool stuff in this store. My favorite shopping bag is the VCR tape woven bag. I love it!!!

Unique regional handcrafts
Jun 2013 • Couples
This small shop on the northbound 101 in downtown Crescent City contains a wide variety of locally made items using mainly local products. There are books related to the area, kelp baskets (my first purchase), shell and wood items, clothing, and many one-of-a-kind felted wool clothing pieces (my granddaughter will love her felted wool mermaid sweater!). The owner is knowledgeable and helpful, easy to talk with. They hold craft classes and she, the owner, is the felted wool expert.
