We are open for business.  How nice to welcome people in the store. 

Thanks to our customers for being kind and safe.  We did create a way for you to shop by reservation.  If you would like to book yourself, your family, your friends.  Stay as long as you like! We look forward to seeing you!

Just call us at 231-271-3050 or use this handy appointment scheduler:

It’s a whole new ball game, this world we are in.  Being creative people, we have to figure it out and adapt to it.  I am excited about this new, intimate way to welcome customers back.  I have missed you all! 

There are some new safety measures in place too, like :

   5 customers at a time are allowed in. Masks are required inside as required by Michigan law. 

   Distancing markers and arrows on the floor make a circle tour of the Bird (with lots of chances to circle back around!) 

   Cotton gloves (reusable)  for customers, so you can touch anything!

   An out of the way waiting area for you while we write up and package your goodies.  (A welcome place to sit down!)

 In every way we can, we will keep everyone safe!



The Painted Bird is a gallery of contemporary American crafts in Suttons Bay, Michigan in the beautiful Leelanau County. The website is fun to explore.  Browse by the type of crafts, or by the artists you may know or want to know.  Looking for beach stone jewelry, silver earrings, or a scarf or a certain artist?  Just type it in the search box...

  Everything in the store is not on the site so contact us for images of what we currently have on hand.
