Something Local, Something Practical

Practical Art It’s always difficult to find that perfect gift for someone who wants nothing and has everything. But, did you know you can find a needle in the haystack at a local artisan boutique? Practical Art is a friendly retail and gallery space featuring 100% locally-made wares in wood, fiber, ceramic, glass, metal, and up-cycled materials.  All of the work sold at this gallery space is produced by more than 100 Arizona artisans and is created with some kind of useful in mind - everything from kitchen tools to home and office items, soap, clothing, furniture, jewelry, and more. One of their main missions is to offer artful products and gifts that are affordable and accessible, meaning the majority of the items in the shop are under $35!
