You can now find mosaic supplies locally in Denver at the ‘Millie and Tess’ shop in Lakewood!
The Millie and Tess shop is the ONLY place in Denver where you can get ALL the supplies and materials necessary to make mosaics in ONE location! Until now, mosaic crafters and artists have had to go to a minimum of 4-5 different stores (more if they were watching price), just to get the supplies they needed to make mosaics. Now, you can find everything from tiles and goodies to decorate your mosaics to the adhesives and grout to glue ‘em down and finish them off, all in one place!
Darla Dolph, a mosaic student of mine and business entrepreneur, has purchased my Supply Shop and moved it to the Belmar area of Lakewood. Darla’s new shop is named, appropriately, ‘Millie and Tess’. She is available for in person shopping by appointment in Lakewood. She carries everything I had in my Supply Shop in addition to some other items. Her prices will still beat anything locally as well as most online mosaic sources and you won’t need to order large quantities in one color, pay shipping, or have to wonder if the color on the computer screen is really what that piece of tesserae looks like when you get it in the mail!
The comprehensive selection includes: glass vitreous tiles, metallic veined tiles, deep color “crystal” glass tiles, glitter tiles, European soft/thin Ceramic Tiles, smalto tiles, glass gems and shapes, stained glass tiles, ceramic tiles and shapes, Van Gogh tiles, millefiori, beads, mosaic jewelry supplies, mirror tiles, and misc. found objects. Mosaic bases, adhesives, grouts, tools, and colorants round out the selection.
Prices are very good; much better than ordering online, having to meet order minimums, and paying shipping! Several package sizes of each item are available so that you don’t have to commit to large quantities of one item. Most items can be special ordered, depending on availability; just ask! Darla has sample boards on hand so that you can see the exact color and texture you’re ordering! At the Millie and Tess supply shop, you can get the materials you want in the sizes you need at an exellent price!
I encourage you to send Darla an email with a message of “ADD ME TO MILLIE AND TESS” so that she can add you to her mailing list! As an added incentive, if you join her mailing list now, you will receive a coupon for 10% off your first purchase! (Just like me, she will not bombard you with messages or share your personal information outside her business.)
