Pieces from the ARTIFACT STORY
"Walter T. Foster was born in 1891 in Woodland Park, Colorado. Walter invented the first postage-stamp vending machine and drew political caricatures for several large newspapers. He's well known as an accomplished artist, art instructor, and art collector. In the 1920s, while running his own advertising agency and instructing young artists, Walter began writing self-help art instruction books. The books were first produced in his home in Laguna Beach, CA, where he wrote, illustrated and printed them himself. In the 1960s, as the product line grew, he moved the operation to a commercial facility, which allowed him to expand the company and achieve worldwide distribution."

If there is a certain kind of 'artifact' you are looking for and you don't see it shown in my shop, do not hesitate to contact me with what you are looking for.... you never know what I may have that I have not listed or what I may have access to.

In addition, if there is a custom art piece that you have in mind or wish you could find and just can't seem to put your hands on it, let me know and I may be able to work with you to create exactly what you are looking for. Just email me.

I thrive on sharing the joy of art, design and history with anyone who has an interest or a question!
I do my absolute best to make sure your art and artifacts are delivered to you with the utmost care and attention to detail.

However, please note the following:

- Custom gift wrapping is not available at anytime.

- All items will however come in an appropriate, individualized interior 'packaging' that will be in addition to and found within the exterior shipping packaging.

- All items will be carefully and appropriately packed in order to minimize any opportunities for breakage or mishandling through the shipping process, but also in order to provide your art and artifacts with the preservation and care they and their stories deserve while they make their way to you.
