We are temporarily located at 1742 H St, Fresno CA while our main shop is remodeled at 1755 Broadway. We are in the process of adding a second location in Downtown Clovis adjacent to the *CVMD (Clovis Veterans Memorial District) in Spring of 2018.
Check our facebook page for updates and events. (public page, no need to have a facebook account).

ArtHop - located in the Downtown Arts District on the first Thursday of the month from 5-8 pm, many galleries and businesses host art showings and receptions that are free and open to the public. We are actively involved in that event as well. We accept a limited number of outside artists/makers to show at ArtHop at no charge (donations if your work sells are optional, but appreciated). It is a one evening event at Fresno Ideaworks, and items must be removed Thursday night unless other arrangements are made.

Please check facebook events for our ArtHop location as we sometimes are on the newly open Fulton Street.
