Dearest Fans and Supporters of Paper Crane,
Since our opening in October 2010, Paper Crane has grown and evolved into a great source for art and handmade goods. We’ve hosted many amazing events and helped emerging artists show and sell their work in our gallery and store. We opened a print shop, now the Bloomington Print Collective, which has fully taken over the space with great success. We have been a collective and volunteer-run organization, which has proved to be a struggle, but big changes are underway!
The Paper Crane handmade shop will be merging with Anatomy Vintage gradually over the next month. Located at 116 S. Grant (the little building behind Soma,) Anatomy has quickly become one of Bloomington’s best places to shop for vintage. Paper Crane’s modern handmade goods are a great compliment to the attire Anatomy offers, and we think this move will lead to more success for the handmade wares that we have to offer. While we will be dropping the Paper Crane name, we will continue to sell many of the wares that we were selling in our previous shop, with an aim to always keep a fresh rotation of art and craft that fit our vision. Gallery shows will cease until we are one day able to move to a bigger space.
Anatomy will be open 6 days a week, all day, so you will have more opportunities to shop, and in a much easier location to find!
We hope to have a “grand opening” of sorts soon, so please stay tuned to find out more info.
Thank you for your continued support and encouragement,
Paper Crane co-founder and handmade shop coordinator
