The Indigo Arts website has remained active over the last two years despite all the dispruptions from the COVID-19 virus.   I have been able to resume regular operations and am able to pack and ship most orders within a few days.   Shipping times have increased during this period.  The gallery is open to visitors on an appointment only basis and according to city masking regulations.   Please phone or email ahead.  

Note:  USPS service remains very  slow.   I don't recommend it if you are in a hurry.   Please note also that USPS shipping estimates only include insurance for up to a $50 value.  If you want full insurance please let me know and I will charge it separately.
Please stay safe!
