    A. - GENERAL INFORMATION
    1. What is ArtsandVines?
    ArtsandVines is a Community dedicated to bringing unique artisan creations to the Public. ArtsandVines believes that creating a Community where the Consumer meets and interacts with the Artisan is essential to understanding and appreciating the personal creations of the Artisan. Most of the products available at ArtsandVines are One of a Kind.

    2. What makes ArtsandVines different?
    We offer a wide range of fine, handcrafted Artisan Works in a single location - a place that buyers would normally only get to visit when attending art and craft fairs, private showings or local galleries. We create a Community where Artisans can present themselves and their styles to the Public and then the Artisan and the Public can interact with each other.
