Locally crafted gifts and accessories in Aurora

Close to home, close to the heart. Locally crafted wares renew pride in the river town community of Aurora. Located at 14 W. Downer Place, this charming shop is packed with home décor, clothing and gifts.
Many items are constructed with re-purposed materials, often with local connections. Tim Schlapp creates art from the wood of former Aurora trees. His wine bottle/glass holder and coasters are best sellers. Send Me A Dream mugs by Sarah Cervantes fly off the shelf. Amy Song Ceramics are made in Plainfield. The Knotted Table of Yorkville produces decorative signs and furniture. Jewelry is crafted from lazer cut wood by Isette of Oswego.
Trending artisanal brands like Creatively Intentional candles, Nest Soap and goatmilk soaps from Sparrow Soaps are all thoughtful gifts.
Space is available for rent in the store or on a spacious patio shared with the café next door. Up to 100 guests can be accommodated for concerts, seminars, book clubs and parties of any kind.Edit Module
