Alright! It's the second installment in our Shops We Love series, and this is a good one! With Small business Saturday right around the corner, we wanted to take a little time to showcase the boutique shops that have helped us so greatly along the way. 

Today we're chatting with Sara of Hands Gallery

Shops We Love - Hands Gallery

Get to know our retailer, Hands Gallery of San Luis Obispo 


Shops We Love - Hands Gallery

Hands Gallery in San Luis Obispo, CA is proud to showcase the work of talented local artists as well as national and international artists and craftsmen. Today we're chatting with Sara who owns Hands Gallery. Sara began managing this gallery several years ago, and now owns the boutique herself!  






What's your favorite section to stock? 

This is a hard one for me because I appreciate every item in the store and every artist that I showcase.  If I am forced to choose, I would have to say jewelry.  I really like finding jewelry to fit every age group and occasion.  It’s a very personal purchase for people and I love helping pick out the perfect piece.

What's your go to metal finish? 

Hands down for me-gold!

What are your small business Saturday plans? 

On small business Saturday we have gift certificate drawings throughout the day.

What 2017 trend did you really love? 

I love the  trend of a growing number of people really appreciating handmade items made in the USA and the desire to support the small businesses that carry them.

When did you open shop? 

The store was started 28 years ago.  I started managing it 15 years ago and purchased it a year and a half ago.

 

Thank you, Sara! We've got one more small business feature up our sleeves!
