A holiday poem from The Art Store:


Gift-sized artworks abound, with paintings and prints from ceiling to ground.

Bits of jewelry here and there, ornaments everywhere.

Trinkets and boxes made of glass, plates and cups decorated with sass,

We have small sized sculpture and tiny works in wood,

If you like us to giftwrap, we could!
