Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday may be soon over but there is one place year round that you can find not only original art – but affordable art.
Yes, Gallery 194 in Lapeer does host small business. The LAA are a group of independent artists both professional and amateur. Artists who create for the love of it and who like to promote the arts within the community also share their art and time in aid of community members, organisations and causes.
The LAA artists are an eclectic bunch you might say! We dabble in paints from oils to watercolour – mixed media to encaustic. Want something that looks beautiful but is functional on the table? We have ceramic artists for that. Want a hat or scarf other than a big chain cloned design? We have knitters and fibre artists in the group.
So the sales come and go but quality lasts and if you are looking for quality Christmas gifts that won’t end up needing a returns slip and want to support a “Made in Michigan” business, then visit Gallery 194 right here in Downtown Lapeer.
So if Holiday shopping is yet to be done, take a trip to Downtown Lapeer where you will find small businesses besides the gallery offering personal service; many family run restaurants and stores to explore and find unique gifts for that special some one.
