Gift Shop

The Banfill-Locke Center for the Arts Gift Shop features handmade items and books by local writers.  Stop in to pick up a gift, a greeting card to share with a friend, a new pair of earrings for yourself, a hand carved wooden bowl, or unique pottery to accent your home.   All items are affordable and lovingly made by a local artist.  Shopping at Banfill-Locke Center for the Arts supports local artists and our programs.

Gift Shop hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 10 am to 4 pm.
