The Crafty Mercantile has been offering Lane County high-quality, locally made arts and crafts supplies since 2012. From beads, clay, paints and glitter, to handmade cards, crochet and knitting supplies and knickknacks, The Crafty Mercantile is an artist’s paradise. Musicians can even enjoy their music corner where used guitars and other instruments are available for purchase.
Owned and managed by Cottage Grove residents Michele Rose and Peter Dumbleton, The Crafty Mercantile has something for the artist in all of us.
Michele even sells her own handmade jewelry and essential oil lockets, which release pleasant aromas around the wearer’s neck.
”You never know what you’ll find here,” Michele states, excited to share her store with her neighbors.
The Crafty Mercantile hosts numerous events throughout the year, including summer project-based art classes, available to children ages five and older starting on July 23. Messy Arts for Kids, ages 18 months to 5 years, takes place year-round on odd-numbered Mondays at 11:30 a.m. Pine Needle Basket Group meets the opposite Mondays and runs from 12:30 to 3:30 p.m. Knitters and crocheters meet every Saturday from 1 to 3 p.m. and an open-studio Art Space follows from 3 to 5 p.m.
The last Friday of every month, from April to October, Cottage Grove is home to the Art Walk and The Crafty Mercantile proudly opens their doors to display and sell local art and present live music. Individuals with questions, or those interested in taking part in the next Art Walk on May 25, should contact Michele.
The Crafty Mercantile is an essential piece of that artistic puzzle and has plenty to offer the community. Whether you’re starting a new art project or need materials to finish your current one, be sure to check out The Crafty Mercantile to complete your masterpiece.
