It is so fulfilling when dreams actually become a reality. I have always loved and appreciated unique handmade arts and crafts. As a child, I admired the beautiful afghans, table linens and lace made by my relatives. An active attendee of the many arts and crafts festivals in our community, I believe that, we, as a community, should support our local artists. As a crafter, who enjoys making floral arrangements, wreaths, scrapbooks and other paper crafts, I often thought about having my own business and selling the work of local artists. However, I couldn’t imagine giving up the guaranteed income and company benefits from my position as a real estate paralegal.
Indicative of these economic times, at the end of 2008, the income and benefits that kept me from following my dream ended. This gave me the perfect opportunity and incentive to follow my dream, and Local Treasures, an art gallery and shop filled with the unique and creative works of a variety of local artists, was born.
Since my new adventure began in 2009, I have met many wonderful and talented artists and artisans right here in the Jupiter/Tequesta area and bring their work to you. At Local Treasures you will find unique pottery, copper art, glass art, jewelry and more — creations of Local Artists. Many of our artists offer workshops. You’ll surprise yourself with your own creativity. We host artists presentations and fund-raising events with local non-profits throughout the year. Stay in touch for upcoming events.
