ARTeNews – November 2017

Ron’s Palette

 

Heartfelt Thanks.

 

November is the month of giving thanks,  and — without sounding like a turkey — I would like give some heart felt thanks. Thanks to all of you customers for supporting Artisan as your local art material supplier for the last 42 years.

Our business has changed a lot since the old days back on Canyon Road. Amazon and other internet stores keep putting more and more local brick and mortar stores out of business. In this light, we thank you for your business and allowing us to remain open to serve you. Thank you to the original owners of Artisan — Bill Banta and Jack Young — for allowing myself and three other retail clerks to acquire Artisan after their deaths, and make a living doing what we enjoy! Thank you to our employees who strive so hard to make each customer have a satisfied experience and our business successful — we appreciate you and could not do it without you.

I could keep going but I bet by now you are thankful that I don’t! Enjoy your Thanksgiving and remember that giving gratitude is an easy way to make whatever you have increase in value,  and whatever you are experiencing be a whole lot more special!

Namaste, Ron
