Over 50 American fine craft artists are represented in blown glass, jewelry, pottery, garden art, and metals. Caryn is able to explain how all the items are made and knows most of the artists personally. A bright, colorful, positive place with a lot of great energy, the Samuell Day Gallery is a delight to the eyes and lots of fun to visit! The jewelry here is unique, amazing, and reasonable - great place for wedding gifts and gifts for yourself less
