365 days plus a lifetime of dreaming, putting in the necessary work, and crushing goals has led up to this party.
The Elizabeth Sarah Collections brand has seen many transitions throughout the years. Starting in Aspen, Colorado two decades ago, Elizabeth and Philip Walker have created and sold their art in various places across the country including their spare bedroom, shed, online store, art shows, and two different brick and mortar locations.
For those that haven’t heard the spiel before, when the two met their first conversation was about their passion for art and to one day work for themselves doing what they love. It took grit, determination and sometimes working in jobs they weren’t totally in love with but these careers paid the bills and allowed them to still create in their spare time.
When they became independent, full time artists it was a dream made reality and their journey was just beginning.
During the Covid pandemic, the Walkers did what many wouldn't dream: they not only expanded their home studio but less than a year later opened their first gallery in Jacksonville Beach. This was the fuel to keep the momentum, creativity and sales going strong while spreading the word about their art and connecting with new faces.
Less than a year later (about eleven months to the day) they got the opportunity to move to a larger retail space not just in their beloved neighborhood, but two blocks from their home!
And we all know it’s all about location, location, location! We couldn’t be more grateful for our new neighbors and being close to home, where Elizabeth and Philip can still make art and jewelry in their “creative vortexes.”
Every step of the journey thus far has been filled with peaks and valleys, but if it weren't for each friendly customer, kind word, review, comment, like or share, the Elizabeth Sarah Collections Gallery & team wouldn't be what it is today.
Now you're probably wondering when I’m getting to the fun part. Aka the party! The Elizabeth Sarah Collections Gallery One Year Anniversary Party will be held at our shop at 1249 Mayport Road Atlantic Beach, FL 32233, from 11 am -7pm on Saturday, September 30th. Technically we’re one day shy of our first full year here but we just couldn’t help ourselves.
And YES, this is going to be an all day affair, as opposed to our previous parties, so buckle up.
This is our chance to thank you all by showing our gratitude and returning the favor for the continued support over the years. Each sale and connection we make with you keeps us open another day and not only feeds our souls but our bellies (not joking here.)
If you’ve been to a gallery party before, you know how we do. From Cinco de Mayo, to Elizabeth’s “Forever 29” Birthday Celebration to Christmas in July, we love a good theme.
Stay tuned for special discounts and interactive fun throughout the day.
We can’t wait to share this special day with all of you & hope you can make it! Mark you calendars and make sure to RSVP via our Facebook event.
