Creative Colony is the place to find that perfect gift
or accent piece for your home.
Creative Colony is a co-operative established in 1986 by a group of artisans looking for a place to offer their hand-crafted products. The shop grew quickly and moved to it's current location, the historic Wohn House, in 1989. The number of members has varied over the years, we usually have 30 to 35 members who produce all the product in the shop.
A member-elected Board takes care of business issues and members handle the day-to-day sales and maintenance of the shop.
A jurying process is in place to select new members since merchandise quality and salability are very important to the overall success of our shop. Members price their own items and maintain their own shop inventory. An elected display team maintains product presentation and changes display areas as needed. If you are interested in learning more about becoming a member send a request for information.
