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 now available for in person shopping by appointment and plans to put the shop items online so that you can order and either have them shipped or go pick them up in Lakewood. She will be carrying everything I carried 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!
Millie and Tess is open By Request; please email Darla or call as far ahead in advance as possible:
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!
Darla is planning on hosting an Open House party in December so that you can come and see all the great mosaic supplies you can get locally in her shop. Those of you on my email list will receive an invite when the party is set and I will see you there at the party. In the future, I will carry just a few supplies at my studio, mostly just things for students in classes to buy. A large color selection of the European soft tiles that I’m using in a lot of my work will be something that I will continue to have on hand if you need those. When the ‘Millie and Tess’ website is ready, this page will link straight into her new shop’s page.
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.)
What are you May shop hours?
Could we shop before your workshop tomorrow, Sat. Aug. 4th?
Diane and Ron
I’m so sorry I missed this post from you; I have got to figure out a better way to get to website comments; something keeps messing up with WordPress so that I don’t see the comments!
Anyway, I’d love to have you come by the shop! However, as you might see on the website, I will be gone now on an extended vacation until Sept. 20th. I can contact you when I get back to see when would be a good time for you, and/or I can add you to my private email list.
Please let me know.
Is the supply store open? If so what are the hours?
Thanks for a marvelous posting! I certainly enjoyed reading it, you might be a great author.
I will make sure to bookmark your blog and will often come back sometime soon.
I want to encourage you to definitely continue your great posts, have a nice day!
