Mrs. Gritzy paid us a visit the other day and she brought a fabulous new selection of adult and child-sized aprons with her! One of my favorites is this coffee bean apron:
Mrs. Gritzy also knits great kitchen scrubbies and washcloths, among other things. You can find her on Facebook here.
ALL of her aprons are available in the shop or on our website! We are currently re-vamping our online shop and are adding new items every week. Bookmark www.eclipsegalleryshop.com and check back often. Here’s a direct link to the aprons.

I am totally in love with the new candles we got in — All You Need Is Candles is a soy candle line by Katie Porterfield. They smell soooo amazing, you just have to come in to smell them. For example, she has created an “Apple Barn” scent that actually smells like an apple BARN. Not just a simple apple scent, no. It actually smells like you just walked into an old apple orchard barn — it’s amazing.
Another great aspect about Katie’s candles is that they are made from 100% soy wax from soy that is grown by American Farmers. She also supports WI business by purchasing her supplies through a family-run business in Northern WI.
Right now we have many fall scents available in different sizes. We also have tarts that can be melted in any type of warmer and reused until they stop smelling. Winter scents will be coming in soon. These make a great holiday gift!
You can also find All You Need Is Candles on Facebook here.
Thanks for buying local and buying handmade!
Hokey, I know,but I’m in a good mood today. Looking around the gallery, I find that we have a lot of ORANGE things right now—one of my favorite colors–so energizing, uplifting, and positive. In the middle of winter, we could all use a little brightness in our life!

Looking for a truly unique gift? Keep us in mind for your holiday shopping! We have some new and exciting things at the gallery, including these great treasure boxes made with found objects and handmade paper by local artist Kirsten Christanson! I think one of these would make a great present filled with some potpourri, ornaments, or other goodies.
$36.00 and they are signed by the artist. Stop by Eclipse or you can buy one online here.
I have been busy making one-of-a-kind fabric Christmas tree ornaments. Hand-sewn and whimsical, they make a great gift or interesting addition to your holiday decorating. You can find a selection here–with FREE shipping if you can’t make it to Algoma!
Only $12 each!
Not to mention all the unique art, craft, and design that we have featured in our current exhibition, 50 Artists, 50 States, 50 Mediums–all of which would make a great gift or addition to your personal collection. The show only runs through December 31st so plan a visit soon!
