Products and Services:
Anthology is a paper and craft shop featuring handmade gifts by over 100 local and independent artists from Madison and beyond. The shop boasts greeting cards, art prints, decorative wrap, rubber stamps, how-to books, craft kits and craft parties. Anthology also carries small-batch screen printed t-shirts & baby onesies, Madison photographs, hand-stamped pottery, and a wide array of ceramic, enamel and soldered jewelry. Anthology was recently featured in The New York Times 36 Hours guidebook among other Madison destinations.
Philosophy:
We provide a highly visible venue for local independent crafters to sell their work and recirculate their money back into the community. Rather than await a cargo container from China we can make merchandise right at the shop and ask our artists to drop off more work the next time they are in the neighborhood. Many of our crafters like to buy from each other and shop local thrift stores for their raw materials. We encourage people who reserve our craft table for private parties to spend a whole day downtown, shopping, dining and creating.
History:
Sisters Laura and Sachi Komai grew up in Madison and opened Anthology in March of 2008 in order to showcase local handmade goods and provide a creativity lab on a burgeoning arts block. We have both taken numerous workshops and classes in drawing, printmaking, bookmaking and collage and are happy to share our crafty ideas.
