There are many arts and crafts stores in La Conner. I believe, each store has their own specialty! There is a store just for photographers only, a store for glass-blowing, wood carvers, potteries, designers, etc. Each store is very special! I have not been to a place where there are so many local artists in residence!
There are jewelry stores and each jewelry displayed is very uniquely-designed and made by the local jeweler. Unbelievable!
This is a place to go when you are also scouting for a unique painting that is affordable or a framed photography.
The potteries are also beautiful. And, they are originally-designed by the local artist!
What to buy: Potteries, photographs, t-shirts, jewelries, knick-knacks, handmade lamps, postcards, handcrafted items, etc. Tons!
If you are buying a larger piece of art, the local store can also ship it for you!
What to pay: Depends on what you buy. There are tags on each item. They accept credit cards and cash.
