STARCO to open new gift shop

The Steelville Arts Council plans to open a new gift shop and gallery this spring: Heartland Arts Gifts and Gallery. The shop will be located in the Evan’s House at 303 Main Street and will sell original, handcrafted arts and crafts from the surrounding area.

STARCO plans a soft opening on Thursday, March 7 and a Grand Opening on Thursday, April 4. The shop will be open Thursday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily.

The goal is to provide an outlet for local artisans to sell their craft, a place to offer demonstrations or classes in addition to different events for the community. Event ideas include Book Clubs, Game Nights, Fireside Chats, First Fridays, Murder Mystery Nights, Children’s Arts and Crafts, Puppet Theater and more.

Currently, organizers are seeking local artists who wish to offer handcrafted creations for sale in the shop, with a deadline of February 28 to have items delivered.
