footprints trail behind me, lost
in other footprints.

Take care,

Dodson’s Fine Jewelers Closing Sale!!!

Dodson’s Fine Jewelers is closing, after 131 years in business. The Spokane Store has been a local fixture, and in the past several years they’ve expanded into fine art sales, providing a spacious gallery in the back of the store and on the upper level.

I’ve had two very successful shows at Dodson’s, in 2015 and 2017, and I regret that I will not be able to have any more. However I’ve sincerely enjoyed working with owners Penn Fix and Debra Schultz. Penn and Debra will be retiring, and I wish them all the best in their new adventures. Maybe they’ll take up plein air painting!

Dodson’s will remain open until sometime in March, and will be selling inventory at up to 70% off. Artwork will be 10% off. This is an opportunity to purchase some truly fine work, both jewelry and art.

Dodson’s Fine Jewelers is located in Spokane at 516 W Riverside Ave, Spokane, WA 99201.
