Formerly Wholly Craft, Wild Cat Gifts and Party has a new name but is still our favorite crafty shop in town. Store owner Olivera gives us her Top 5.
Sarah’s talent and tenacity are extraordinary. Anyone that followed along on her journey of 100 days of macraweaves earlier this year saw how determined and wildly creative she can be every single day. Her pieces are a treasure and no matter what you think of your own creative talents, take a class with her. You will walk out feeling better about yourself and the world.
Amy’s bright, colorful paintings can bring a smile to the sourest of Grinches. The pocket sized paintings make a great gift to anyone starting an art collection (which is something I highly recommend to anyone). We recently commissioned Amy to paint a mural on the side of our building and it brings me joy every day.
I own far too many sparkly caftans because of Splendor Revival. (or maybe not enough?) The mix of handmade and vintage that Katya creates and curates blends together seamlessly to repeatedly thrill the community she has cultivated around her business. When you meet someone who loves Splendor Revival as much as you do, you know you’re in good company.
Poor Sparrow is a tried and true favorite of mine in the local handmade community. Katie’s pieces are somehow both timeless and perfect for the moment. I started wearing necklaces because of her and never looked back. It’s always exciting to see what’s new in her booth and her talent and work ethic as an artist remind me why I love working with local artists.
Erika is one of our newest vendors at Wild Cat and we all immediately fell in love with the beautiful florals on her mugs and dishes. The color palette and handmade feel to her work give it a warm, peaceful vibe that is welcome in any home.
