12/4/17 EXCITING NEWS: The Goddess of Glass is in the top three finalists for The Best Local Gift Shop in Minnesota and I think the voting ends in a couple of days! Visit THIS LINK and cast your vote TODAY!

The Goddess of Glass is located in the Victory Neighborhood in North Minneapolis (NOMI) and features an always evolving variety of unique handmade gifts by local artists, along with fine art, prints and picture framing. We have added a new variety of art classes and musical events to our menu and can’t wait to show you the Ryder Gallery and our next show of local art!

We are located at the busy intersection of 44th & Penn Avenues in North Minneapolis. That’s just over a mile north of Highway 100 and Brooklyn Boulevard (BB becomes Osseo Road at 49th Ave N); and west of I-94 from both the 49th/53rd Ave N and Dowling Ave exits. We have a parking lot right out front lined with a collection of colorful planters.

We just launched the 2017 Glass Fusing Fun Gift Voucher deal! Follow the link below; I think you can buy as many as you like by using the “add to cart” option. Let me know if you need a printed voucher to present as a gift. If you intend to use them all yourself (fine by me!), I can print out a list for you to keep track of your usage.

FINE PRINT: A voucher for two or four people is intended to be used all in one visit and cannot be used for private fusing parties. The promotional value of the certificate expires one year from the date of purchase. It is then worth what you paid for it towards a Glass Fusing Fun class only. These vouchers cannot be used on any other classes we offer. The following link will take you to a PayPal window. To use your credit/debit card, scroll down a bit and click on that blue bar “Use my credit card”.

“This is great neighborhood shop with wide variety of treasures made by local artists! It feels like shopping in a mini art gallery. The owner is wonderful and very involved in the community. You can feel good about your purchases on all fronts. Keep this on your list of places to shop local for holidays, b-days, and in between!”

“This is my new go-to place for gifts. I always find interesting and unique things for just about anybody I am looking for. Some locally made jewelry also caught my eye. I am so happy to have this place in my neighborhood!”
