The Columbia Museum of Art Shop offers a unique array of beautiful and creative gifts. Items in the shop are handpicked by manager Bohumila Augustinova, who is a local artist known for her stunningly intricate wirework. Both her artistic sensibilities and her studies in fashion design inform her selections in everything from accessories to home decor to paper goods.
The work of famous artists throughout history graces many items in the shop — from stationery and journals to puzzles and scarves. This year, Norman Rockwell is the featured artist, as his work is on exhibition in the Museum.
Local artisans contribute as well, bringing handcrafted beauty to glass, baskets, woodcarvings and more. Customer favorites such as Buddha Boards and limited edition handmade jewelry from around the world are always on hand. You’ll also discover books that you never knew existed, but are exactly what you need.
For children, you will find award-winning educational toys and activities. They are not only beautiful, but thoughtful in their design, made to bring out imagination and creativity in play. Many of the toys are well suited for special needs children.
During the holiday season, find gift wrap and greeting cards with a modern or original twist. Plus, any item over $20 comes with complimentary gift-wrapping.
