We have several of their pieces in our home. We consider them somewhat of a good-luck object and think that, large or small, everyone would enjoy having one of these... More

The closest thing... More

Oh my gosh! What wonderful sculpture. From the fantasy animal pieces to the Steampunky metal sculpture, the gallery was full of fun. The owners/artists were wonderful to talk with too.

I love this store. I don't even know where to start except when you are on Salida, CO you must go to this place and see all the creations that call this store home. Your imagination comes to life in this place.
