Helen Winnemore - 1938 Sarah Kellenberger - 2009
Helen Winnemore Craft is considered the oldest store of its kind in the United States. In operation since 1938, HWC focuses on the work of American Artisans. What does this mean? It means that our shop is like an arts festival…all year round.
We believe that art should be accessible and isn’t limited to items that hang on walls or sit on pedestals.
Art can be usable.
Art can be wearable.
Art can be-well, ART!
The work of our American Artisans shows that beauty can be found in everyday objects. Daily routines are made rich and personal through usable, wearable, art. Consider the ritual of choosing your favorite mug from the cabinet on a Saturday morning, putting on your favorite pair of earrings, using a wooden salad bowl given to you for your wedding. These everyday items are connected…to the artists who conceive of them, using their talent and energy in the making. They are connected to the moment they were chosen for you, and the person who made them a gift for you.
helenwinnemores.com is just a taste of what we represent in our shop. But we’ll make it a delicious one for you-and keep you up to date on what’s new. If you can’t come to the shop, we’ll bring it to you.
