Wholly Craft – A distinct Ohio craft shop in ColumbusMay 20th, 2013 | Posted by in My Latest Project
This week brought another retail opportunity my way at Wholly Craft! in Columbus, Ohio. Since I had never been there and found their website and store front so appealing, we decided to stop and personally drop off a pile of my Ohio chalk cloth and burlap mats for sale.
I wasn’t able to meet the owner, Olivera Bratich, on this visit, but before we were even in the door, I was impressed with the charming window displays, especially the sewing machine!
The shop is chock full of wares that are interestingly displayed and somewhat commonly grouped. Lots of jewelry, tee shirts, hand sewn items and gifts sporting Ohio logos. This would be a great place to find a present for that hard-to-please friend or check off lots of people on your Christmas list.
Floor to ceiling displays, lots of super bright paint, and great old wood floors add to the character of the place which is 1000 square feet and features work from over 200 crafty vendors – many of them from Ohio. I really like the fact that they include info about their vendors on their website under the tab Crafty Comrades.
Wholly Craft also offers classes and a Supply Closet where crafters can pay what they wish for scraps of fabric and other odds and ends left behind by crafters who actually have the discipline to clean and get rid of stuff. Imagine! I can’t wait to return to this unique shop.
