Creative and Thoughtful Gifts We Love To Give
Creative and Thoughtful Gifts We Love To Give

by Andrea Hurt

So much heart and talent is poured into each handmade item we sell. We wish everyone could see the excitement and pride on the faces of our local makers and artists when they deliver their imaginative creations to the gallery. It’s even better when a customer is in the store to add to our loud oooohhs and ahhhhs. We’re also pretty thrilled and noisy when we open packages from our other small-shop vendors, who send us their creative goodness from Denmark, Belgium, Morocco, Colorado, California or nearby towns in North Carolina. It’s kind of Christmas every day at 3oak.

I am a total paper person.  I could touch it, smell it, and find ways to hoard it all day long.  When I started hand printing paper, folks would tell me that it was just too pretty to use.  Nonsense!  Life is too darn short (+ weird, thanks Covid) to let things we love sit on a shelf or in a closet.
