Last November we were looking for another new location to bring Artist & Craftsman's signature charm to New York City, and we found the perfect place in Long Island City. Located at 34-09 Queens Blvd, this 89 year old building is the former location of a Breyer's Ice Cream factory.

 

For several weeks A&C worker bees have been adding our own stylistic flourish to this delicious 10,000 sq.ft. space, sprinkling A&C magic on everything from the walls to the floors and even the shelving. We even scooped up some space on the giant billboard atop the building, which some may recognize as the shape of Breyer's iconic leaf logo.

 

Soon we'll start moving in products and training our new staff. We can't wait to start serving up some sweet arts & crafts treats from our new home in Long Island City

KC Warehouse Expansion

Monday, Jul 29, 2013

Posted By Larry Adlerstein

Thanks to you, our business is up about 12% this year. The web business is up about 75% over the same time a year ago.

 

All thanks to you.

Thanks
.

 

We opened a retail store in Kansas City about 18 months ago and rented some extra space to become our web shipping warehouse, some day. Well some day is coming.

 

Our store/warehouse is located in the crossroads, a developing artsy district. We’ll open this mid-American warehouse in October and to celebrate we’ll be offering, to the 1st of next year, free freight for the items we stock there.

 

Right now we plan to stock stretched canvas, wood panels, and Shizen Indian papers. Stay tuned, more to come.

Kansas City

Monday, Oct 31, 2011

Posted By Larry Adlerstein

I got to Kansas City on a Monday. By Friday I learned a thing or two…
What a nice city Kansas City is. We’re setting up shop in their Crossroads neighborhood, their arts district. And I don’t mean to offend my new friends, but I don’t taste the difference between Kansas City barbeque and the version I ate in the Memphis, TN airport. But I’m from Maine.
