Tending Joy Artisan Shop

697 State Rd, West Tisbury
AND whenever the OPEN FLAG is flying!


It's so wonderful to hear folks sigh with delight when they enter the Tending Joy Artisan Shop in West Tisbury.  "Oh I see what this is!" exclaimed one visitor the other day, "this is a happy place!"  YES YES!  That's just what I set out to do: to create a shop that was uplifting; life-affirming & restorative...  A place that celebrated the creative spirit.  Here you'll find all my books, cards & gifts as well as a beautiful mix of local and global arts & crafts, clothing, textiles, pillows... pottery... tea...candles... chocolate... joyful things from around the world.
