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 Fall of 2017.
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 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.
