NEW SHOP! Artifact Beacon
Opening Day: Saturday, May 12, 2018 Location: 17 East Main St., Beacon, NY (near Dogwood)
Remember that Pop-Up Shop that was in A Little Beacon Space last fall? The one with the cool copper rings, pottery and paintings? They loved their retail experience so much that they opened a permanent shop in Beacon in the former Gwenno James storefront (near Dogwood) featuring jewelry, pottery and paintings from the original trio! Featured in the Highlands Current, you must stop in to their new store at 17 East Main St. to see the copper rings, which have been fused to rocks in a process called electroforming. Watch their big reveal of the window signage (looks a little bit like a ghost...) Thanks Artifact for advertising your Opening Day in A Little Beacon Blog! Information >
