  • The Artful Giraffe is the best! My daughter has the greatest time picking out the mold and painting it. The turnaround time is really fast. It's the perfect place for something fun to do or a thoughtful handmade gift. The store is wonderful as well with many great things to choose from. We will be back!
  • What a fun and interesting place! I have taken a couple of classes and have made several purchases here. I took the Salt Scrub class. We made 3 different products and had tons of fun. It was well worth the cost of the class. I also took the Cheese Making class and had a blast with the instructor, Joanne, and the owner, Noel. We made 2 kinds of delicious cheeses and had so much fun that I didn't want to leave. If you like funky artsy people and place, then you have to visit The Artful Giraffe.
