Midwest Living Review

Lisa McClintick
This cute and quirky downtown shop carries art supplies and Asian-inspired gifts.

Like many of Northfield’s downtown shops, the Sketchy Artist has a character and personality all its own. Wide-plank floors, brick walls and a copper ceiling make a fun backdrop for the inventory of handmade papers, paints, colored pencils, clay, paints, fountain pens and sketchbooks.

Gift options are creative with an Asian twist—think stuff like Buddha boards, tote bags, Japanese pottery and dishes, greeting cards and stationery.  The kids’ section features art workbooks, games, wooden toys and whimsical books like Encyclopedia of Immaturity. Young kids are welcome to doodle on a chalkboard while parents shop.
