“Creative Harmony Arts & Books” needs your support to furnish and stock art & craft supplies for on-going projects. It's my wish that your generous donations of things you may have laying around idle could help springboard the shop’s economic success. Creative communities aren’t built in a day or alone. I hope the art studio and book store concept will be a benefit to all those with a love for art & books in the local Harmony/Zelienople area and well beyond. Come one, come all! Come to learn in a class/workshop and/or buy books. Competing with the on-line behemoths will not be easy in the book department so I’ve narrowed the categories to those noted below under: inventory resale. Asking for your donations – (sorry but it’s not a non-profit so can’t be deductible). Possible equipment: Needed: shelving for supplies wooden library style shelving for books 8’ tables with folding legs or other style but prefer collapsible folding or stacking chairs table top painting easels art supplies & art paper craft supplies; glue guns/staple guns/ artist brushes & paints (small containers or acrylic for art – gallons w/pump) fabrics print blocks (linoleum or wood) screen print supplies frames
Creative items for reuse in bulk if a class project can be created with them.
For inventory resale – donated books in excellent condition about art & craft instruction. Also classic titles in hardback or recently re-released in trade paperback size; mostly literary fiction, satire or “page to screen” novels ---(no mass market/commercial genres). Coffee table books in craft-art-design-photography also accepted. Otherwise, new book inventory will be sourced from distributors and publishers and local published authors. I will also offer consignment for books by authors local to area and Western PA with condition of their holding salon and/or signing with panel discussion at shop. Authors should contact me. Just remember our shop motto… Creating, writing and learning to be curious in harmony. “You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.” Thank you so much for your support of this creative venture. Please use contact page to let me know how you wish to help. Sandy
