This is one of my favorite shops! If you are looking for a specially made scarf, art, pottery, glass, furniture, paper, woven items, leather, jewelry, this is the place to go. Although there are many pieces here that are super cool to give as gifts, you will find the store has many items that you would like to keep for yourself. It is a great place to go to be introduced to artists in the area who might make something custom for you too.

I live in Bloomington, and this is one of two shops here in town where I always go when I need a gift for someone (or for myself).
The shop always has a great selection of products from a variety of artists, and the selection is always rotating so you’ll have new things to choose from every time you go in.
I’ve also always been really pleased by the price range of the products, as well. It seems like they really do their best to stock items at a range of price points, which is a really good thing when they’re doing business in a college town with residents at a variety of income levels.
The shop can be a little hard to find inside of Fountain Square Mall, but it’s definitely worth stopping by!

This is a great place to shop for gifts or just for yourself. The amount and variety of local artists’ work is very good. Lee Cohn and Marilyn Greenwood are two of Bloomington’s local jewelry artists who have items for sale at this store. I love it and believe you will too.

I have purchased many items from By Hand Gallery. I love the scarves for gifts and myself. I have one of the lamps and several wood products. I can purchase on line and find the variety helpful in gift giving. Love to visit as well.

I have purchased beautiful jewelry pieces, a hand thrown pitcher with a unique finish, and a hand dyed scarf from the By Hand Gallery. These are just a few of the many different types of art to choose from. I would recommend this shop for gifts or just to treat yourself!
