Museum Shop Now Open Year Round!

Our museum shop is now open year-round on weekends from 11am to 4pm.  This month the shop is featuring a big sale on Christmas cards, ornaments, calendars, books and more.

We also have many new items including tiles, pottery, books, note cards, gifts, children’s toys, and more.  Beautiful signed and numbered block prints of Craftsman Farms by Yoshiko Yamamoto of the Arts & Crafts Press http://www.artsandcraftspress.com/default.asp have just arrived.

You can be among the first to own Modern Craft Styles by Charles Stickley.   The catalogue reprint of Charles Stickley’s mission furniture was just released is finally available to collectors.  This book includes the complete 117-page Stickley & Brandt Chair Company 1911 trade catalogue, plus a 16-page illustrated history of the company and its principals, Charles Stickley and Schuyler Coe Brandt.  Most Arts and Crafts aficionados know that Charles Stickley was Gustav Stickley’s younger brother and that he made mission furniture-but that is about it.  Until publication of this book, Charles Stickley was the Stickley brother we knew the least about. Even photographs of Charles Stickley were hard to come by.  Even less was known about Charles Stickley’s business partner (and brother-in-law), Schuyler Coe Brandt.   The unabridged 1911 trade catalogue is reprinted in its original size, 9”x12”.  The catalogue shows over 200 designs of Stickley & Brandt mission furniture, including settles, settees, armchairs, side chairs, rockers, footstools, library tables, desks, tabourettes, bookcases, dining room suites and bedroom suites.

And, as always, you can find other unique items when you shop online.
