On Friday, May 1, The Tinsmith’s Wife will again welcome customers through our doors to browse and shop.

We recognize and respect that there are many that are not yet ready to re-engage for in-person shopping.   As such, we are here to help you with our “retail-to-go” efforts – shipping and/or curbside pickup.     Just call, email, online shop, text or message us.

For those that ‘need’ to come and shop in person, please know that we have ways to create a safe shopping experience.  We are mindful of this as we do have many in our customer base who are deemed in the at-risk category (e.g., greater than 65 years of age).   When you visit we will have a few requested practices for all of us to follow.

At this point in our re-entry into the world of normal, we are NOT encouraging anyone to sit and stitch/knit/visit at this time.  It is sad but prudent, and there will be time soon enough to gather around the tables in our happy place.

In all stay healthy and safe!

The Tinsmith’s Wife loves fiber, cats, and coffee….

We encourage you to bring your current project and join us for a morning or an afternoon. There are several comfy spots to sit (next to a cat or two), and there is always laughter and inspiration. There are also great antique shops, yummy places to eat, and a sense of stepping back in time, just outside our doors.

if you are interested in learning one of our crafts, we would love to help you learn as well!

In a nutshell – we have a lot of great stuff! The journey is walking through the rooms of our amazing historic building and coming across another gem of luscious inspiration.

Enjoy and explore – and if you are interested in learning one of our crafts, we would love to help you learn as well!   Just call the shop to coordinate a time to come in.
