Greetings from Anthology!
We are looking forward to a busy July with the Farmer’s Market, Concerts on the Square, Tuesday Lunchtime Concerts, daily Solidarity Sing-Alongs, downtown weddings and Art Fair on the Square (9th & 10th).
Once again we will pair with Absolutely Art to offer our second annual Studio Garage Sale during Maxwell Street Days (July 15th-16th). For $5 you can stuff a bag with donated arts and craft supplies; the money will go to local children’s art programs such as the MMoCA Art Cart, Monroe Street Fine Arts Center, and Absolutely Art's Shirts That Supply. We will happily accept your supplies--fabric and paper scraps, old books, calendars, picture frames, yarn, mosaic pieces--if you are cleaning out your studio. Last year’s sale was very popular with art teachers and parents wanting to make affordable crafts with their kids.
In addition to the Studio Garage Sale we will have a Sale Table inside the shop.
We continue to get new arrivals daily:
