Gem of the Dunes – Art Store and Gift Shop on Route 12

Nestled along US Route 12 near Beverly Shores is a pleasant little art store that time seems to have forgotten. It’s an Art store divided in two. On one side you’ll find every type of equipment needed to draw, paint or otherwise fulfill your craft interests. On the other side is the official Save the Dunes Council store dedicated to local artists and their wonderful works.

I was informed by a friend today that the Save the Dunes gift shop also sells the iconic South Shore Line Posters that I wrote about earlier yesterday.

The Save the Dunes Gift Shop is located on US Route 12 right before you get to Beverly Shores. Not only does the shop carry the South Shore posters, but they carry works of arts and crafts from local artisans.

There is some pretty incredible art in this store – all of it related to Indiana Dunes. You’ll find lovely oil painings, watercolors and gorgeous photography. Best of all – proceeds from the shop go to support local artists and the continued preservation of the Indiana Dunes.

Best of all – Gift Shop by the Save the Dunes Council shares the same building with an incredible art store. At Firme Art and Office Supplies you’ll find everything you can possibly want to pursue your particular art.

They have a huge, reasonably priced selection of arts and crafts products that just has to be seen to be believed.

So, next time your driving down US Route 12 – stop by Firme Art and the Save the Dunes Gift Shop.
