Are you the person who really wants to make a statement this Valentine’s Day? Dickinson and Wait Craft Gallery has the perfect gift for your Valentine – a neon heart with wings. About 2 feet high and three feet wide, this piece is made in the U.S. (like all of the crafts sold here) by the same artist whose purple neon cat lights up the window of the Inn. Those animals will be the subject of another blog post, one of these days.
This beauty can light up the heart of your special someone, or you can choose from some more traditional gifts of hand-crafted earrings, bracelets and rings. A blown glass heart paperweight might fit the bill for a gentleman valentine, as may some of the carved wooden boxes or bowls. There are several types of West Virginia glass for sale, including twirly ring holders and bud vases. The store is owned by local entrepreneurs Meredith Wait and Debbie Dickinson – Debbie’s pottery and jewelry are featured in the store’s offerings and on theOver the Mountain Studio Tour in November. They celebrated 20 years in Shepherdstown last year!
