We Have Three Reminders For You

"What a happy find! From northern VT to DC - just to find this great shop. Thanks." Barbara

A Page From The Past
I remember when... this book came out! This was one of the early great books on the Zuni families of fetish carvers, the carvings and the materials used in carving. Originally published in 1990; Revised Edition, 1995. Take a look at page 60 for the young budding artists of the Quandelacy family and page 64 for Colvin and Claudia Peina just for starters. Oh, so young!
We have two current copies of this book left in the Shop, click here to see them.

Open on Saturday,
June 18, 2016
 10 a.m.- 4 p.m.

The Indian Craft Shop is open Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30p.m., and the third Saturday of the month from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The Shop is closed on federal holidays.

A photo ID is needed for entrance to the building. During weekdays, visitors may use either the
C Street or E Street entrances (E Street is closer for Metro riders). Handicap access ramps are available at both entrances. During Saturday hours, visitors must use the C Street entrance.

Public Transportation
Farragut West (Blue, Orange, and Silver Line) and Farragut North (Red Line) are the closest metro stops. It is a six-block walk, or you can ride an 80 or S1 bus to 19th and C streets. There is metered parking on the street and several parking lots within a few blocks.

The first reminder is we are open this Saturday, June 18 (our third Saturday opening), from 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m., and we look forward to seeing you!
The second reminder is that this Sunday, June 19 is Father's Day!  So, we're just in time with our third Saturday opening to help you with a selection of gifts for the fathers and father figures in your lives.  We wish all of you a wonderful Father's Day weekend!

The third reminder is that our 15% discount on any item related to Pollinators* continues through June 24th - this is a GREAT time to shop and take 15% off a great variety of items in recognition of National Pollinator Week.

You would be surprised how many of the items in the Shop are related in one way or another to pollinators or plants - we think of hummingbirds, butterflies and bees but did you consider squash blossoms? Since most of our summer crops, including squashes and melons, rely on pollinators, that means, in addition to squash blossom necklaces and earrings, any piece of artwork with a squash blossom design is included, too! How about arts that have the shapes of melon ribs, such as pottery or jewelry?! Take a look around and you will be surprised what you find. (If we have overlooked marking something on the web store, just give us a call or an email and we are happy to discuss - it's been a learning experience for all of us!)

*Bronzes, publications, notecards, consignments and a few select crafts and jewelry excluded.
