Herban Lifestyle products on display at ArtSpring
Today I was in downtown Silver Spring, MD dropping off a gift basket for an upcoming charity auction, and decided to stop in at ArtSpring, which is just around the corner.
I love ArtSpring for many reasons. For one thing, they carry my products But just as important, they carry a wide selection of work by local artisans. ArtSpring is housed in a huge light-filled beautiful retail space (formerly a Merrimekko store) in the relatively recently renewed downtown Silver Spring.
Every time I visit ArtSpring, I have to buy something. Today I found pure beeswax tapers — a very rare find. The last time I was there, I purchased a bracelet crafted from a repurposed silver fork. Very fun stuff!
ArtSpring has scheduled its grand re-opening for Saturday, August 8th. The Silver Spring venue, which is dedicated to promoting the arts in the community, includes a retail shop featuring the work of DC-area artisans. The store will offer handcrafted products including fine art, jewelry, accessories, pottery, kids stuff, gifts and more.
ArtSpring, formerly known as Pyramid Atlantic Community Arts Store, will be moving down the street into space previously occupied by Merrimekko. All profits from sales support the Pyramid Atlantic Art Center, a Silver Spring non-profit center dedicated to promoting art in the community.
You can find several Herban Lifestyle products, alongside the work of several other local artisans like Capital Region Etsy Street Team‘s Babus.
So, if you are around on August 8th, stop by ArtSpring’s new location at 8519 Georgia Ave., at the corner of Georgia Avenue and Ellsworth Avenue, where they will be celebrating all day from 10:00am-5:00pm!
