Welcome to our new online store!
Welcome to the new Artful 21 online store. On May 1, 2016, the Up Side of Downs opened a retail store in Independence, Ohio, featuring the work of 7 artisans with Down syndrome. Since then, many artisans have been added and the store includes 20 artisans from all over the country. Artful 21 accepts items from small business owners with Down syndrome on consignment, with 90% of the proceeds going back to the artisans. Artful 21 employs 3 individuals with Down syndrome in the store. We’ll be featuring our artisans in upcoming blog posts. We encourage you to get to know our talented entrepreneurs and purchase their beautiful work!
