Perrysburg art store moving, expanding

Posted: Updated:
PERRYSBURG, OH (Toledo News Now) -

A local business is moving out of downtown Perrysburg in order to offer new features.

Artforms is filled with hundreds of different kinds of art, including jewelry and handmade, blown-glass pieces. After 13 years downtown, the store will be moving to the former Mills Hardware store down the street.

The former hardware store has been vacant since last spring. Artforms owner Kristin Kaminsky says they needed more space to sell eco-art-furniture they have repurposed. And starting next year, they will open a glass-blowing hot shop, which can't be found anywhere else in the city.

"You will be able to watch glass-blowing demonstrations on the premises," Kaminsky said. "We will be blowing glass right there on the premises, so that's huge. That was one of our reasons for wanting more space."

Kaminsky says it has been a dream of hers to expand the business, and she can't wait to open the new doors next month.
