It’s been a long road so far.

After almost 10yrs of running a successful business I’ve learned that I’m not a money motivated person. 
 I became a shop owner because I wanted to have more freedom in the way I do things and free up my schedule in order to CREATE  but after a while the “business” part dominates the creative brain. It’s not something I want to continue for myself or my team.
 So…..

 Nearing the 10yr anniversary of Gold Dust I’ve decided to change it up a bit and get back to those creative roots. 
I’ve partnered with local artist and varies small businesses to create a fresh and more art centered environment for my team, myself, and the public. 

Gold Dust is getting a new look & new location!!!!

After many months of planning and hard work it’s finally near completion so I’m excited to share the news. 

Stay tuned for more details on the new location and our grand opening.
Thank you for all the years of support. 
I’m excited for the change of pace and new creative culture. 

DONT WORRY, we haven’t gone far

*and NO our Current location is not available There are future plans for that space lol

Just because you can’t see me doesn’t mean I’m not creating 

Social media isn’t an accurate representation of real life. I assure you the things I do daily are far more interesting than the image deposits I make here. 

Be back soon 😉😉
