Our Artisans

Talent Overflows

The work of over fifty local craftspersons fills the storefront space with displays that are changed on a monthly basis. The shop is run by members of the co-operative, who have the opportunity to sell their work with a very small commission taken out, thus keeping prices at The River Artisans Cooperative very competitive.

Our merchandise is varied and includes pottery, quilts, stained glass, woodenware, jewelry, dolls, handknits, children’s clothes, painted furniture, cards, baskets and toys. New members are always welcome.
