Seven years ago Delilah’s Art & Gift Shop was opened on East Main Street in Front Royal by three friends who loved art (and shopping).  Over the years it was converted to a little artist co-op and featured art and fine crafts by local artists.

105 E. MainIt  has been a wonderful little shop for local friends to meet and chat as well as a place to find unique, handmade items as well as fine art.

We loved that we were featured in Virginia Living Magazine.  And that last year we were named by the Northern Virginia Daily as the Best Unique Gift Shop.  Many, many thanks.

But today we will close Delilah’s door for the final time.  It is bittersweet.  It has been a wonderful experience working with some terrific artists and seeing their brilliant creations.  I have loved meeting so many people who have shopped with us at Delilah’s.  I especially loved talking with the many out-of-town visitors who have come to the shop and shared their splendid travel experiences.  It has been delightful!

As a good friend reminded me yesterday, “when one door closes, another one opens”, and that is exactly what is happening now.  As Delilah’s closes it’s doors it will only be closed for a short time.

We are announcing the Grand Opening of a new venture, The Studio – A Place for Learning!  The Studio exists to create opportunities for community members to explore fine arts, crafts and other areas of personal development in a casual and recreational environment. Classes and workshops will be offered for a variety of skill levels ranging from the absolute beginner exploring a new craft to the experienced and seasoned artist or craftsman.   The Studio is available for people of all abilities to explore and create. The space is available for rent for small groups whether for workshops, classes or parties at a very reasonable rate.    Our ultimate goal is to help people overcome potential fears and discover their innate creativity by trying something new.

Put Friday, August 1st on your calendar.  That will be the day of the Grand Opening  of The Studio.  We are planning many great activities that day for you to experience what we will be offering….and that day it will all be free.  We hope you will embrace our new venture as you did Delilah’s.

We are truly grateful for the support you have given us all these years!

We had a prefect day in Front Royal for the Wine Festival yesterday.  Many thanks to Sandra Patterson for the photos of the happenings around Delilah’s Art and Gift Shop.  We had a lot of visitors stop by.  And Shelly and Tami did a great job with the Kids Craft Corner.  The kids got a real kick out of making their “Bug Necklaces” as well as many other fun crafts.  Thanks girls.  All in all a very nice day!
