Rim country is getting a new craft store unlike any the area has seen, owner Jeri Mertes said.
Crafts Etc., which is scheduled to open July 11 in Star Valley, will include "many special features not usually found in retail establishments" in addition to arts and craft supplies, art classes and a gallery showcasing local artists, Mertes said.
The unique features will include child care during classes, a lounge area with TV and videos for spouses not shopping or taking classes, a child play area, and free refreshments during classes.
Also, Mertes said, regular users of the facility will be able to earn free classes and discounts on arts and crafts supplies.
As she is now planning her supplies stock, Mertes welcomes all suggestions from the community. She can be reached at 478-5076.
