Handmade gifts at Boca’s art museum shop

Boca Raton Museum of Art gift store in the lobby is reminding shoppers they’re open for business during museum hours and especially for the holidays.

Here’s a Q&A with museum marketing director Aylin Tito. Boca’s art museum is on the north end of Mizner Park.

Q: What do you have for the home?

A: Among the items are Key West and Nena Escobar pottery and ceramics by Delray Beach artist Jeff Whyman, whose work is on view at the museum through Jan. 3.

Q: What about gifts for children?

A: We have sidewalk chalk, puzzles and a Backyard Explorer kit for ages 5 and up.

Q: I see an array of rings, bracelets, earrings and necklaces by jewelry designers.

A: Our Italian Murano glass jewelry is popular and we have a colorful new line by Sandia Dublin. We have necklaces and earrings by Maria Paul Kyros.

Q: I see a hand-painted fabrics and even wide-brimmed hats.

A: There are hand-painted scarves and even face masks. We have pillows and purses by Andrea Huffman.

Q: What book are you highly recommending?

A: “Truth Bomb,” artwork by female artists.

Q: What else do you want patrons to know?

A: We’re only accepting credit cards, no cash. But you can order off the gift guide on the website https://bocamuseum.org/visit/boca-raton-museum-store. Or you can call 561-392-2500 and we’ll will do curbside pickup. We ship, take price off and put the gift in a gift bag and enclose a greeting.

Q: Anything else you want to say to encourage museum store purchases?

A: Member appreciation days are through Jan 3. Members receive an additional 10% off their purchases. There’s free gift wrap for member purchases every Saturday in December.

This is the perfect time to join as a member or renew your membership. You can always gift a museum membership, so you are gifting with a purpose and buying something unique.
