After being open less than three months, the artisan shop Crafters Cubbies has added the work of four more local artists. The shop, at 626 N. Beeline Highway, now has the work of 32 Rim Country artists and crafters for sale. Each artist’s work covers a different area, from knitters, jewelers, scrapbookers to now a scrimshaw, pencil artist and photographer. Owner Rebecca Acord said her goal for the shop is to offer a place for local artists to sell their wares and give residents a place to pick up a one-of-a-kind gift or collectible. The shop will soon be expanding, adding more room for new mediums. The response from residents has been great, she said. “People are excited to see something fresh and this is a way to support local talent.” The shop’s new artists include pencil drawer Laura Gabaldon, photographer and embroiderer Alice Wrobley, scrimshaw artist Homer Neuen and custom pet magnet creator Shari Cody.
