We work with as many local artisans and artists as we can to bring you fine, unique gifts and books. Showcasing local talent makes sense and feels great!

Janet Zug’s style is clean and classy with a playful feel. From her original hanging vase design and graceful Twister series to her dancing Jesters and happy Jubilant vases, she has captured this medium in a unique way. Janet’s life as a glassblower began with an apprenticeship in 1990. Now, Zug Glass creations can be found in fine galleries and private collections around our world.

We always have a large selection of Janet Zug’s glass creations on display in the store. Everyone who has seen the sun shining through that breathtaking rainbow collage of glasswork in the window knows how completely the sight will put a new spin on anybody’s day!

Zug Glass creations can be found on sale in our co-op year-round.
