Spring has sprung at the Picklepot
If you're looking for local art, you need to be looking at The Picklepot on Pickering Wharf. Featuring more than 50 local artists, the Picklepot is a contemporary craft gallery filled with jewelry, ceramics, hats, clothing, photography, sculpture, glass, handmade paper, soaps, cards, and more.
They are always adding new artists, most recently welcoming the turned wooden bowls and bracelets of Shawn David, and Mermaids and steamy princesses by Karen Hallion. Featured items run the gamut from cards and jewelry from Headcase Press (becasue sometimes we all need a card that says, "That sucks!") to hippy baby clothes from Collaborative Artworks.
SALE! The Picklepot is doing some spring cleaning to make room for new work! So, you can save 40% off all Nature in Iron work and 40% off all Collaborative Artworks adult clothing.
If you are your own artist, following your own whim, pull up a stool at the Picklepot's Bead Bar. Go solo, or bring friends for a night out. Or, if your creativity thrives in the privacy of your own home or studio - grab a bag and go take-out!
Whether you're shopping for gifts, for art, or for beads, the Picklepot on Pickering Wharf should be on your list!
