Our gallery at 115 North Broadway in downtown Tecumseh began when Leslie Ferrin and Deanne Moore, two childhood friends decided to open a business venture. Their desire was to open an art gallery and gift emporium. They wanted to provide a place to showcase local artists and craft workers. They envisioned a place where much laughter would happen and creative projects would be done. One problem in their plan was neither of them knew anything about teaching art classes. An additional challenge was finding artists willing to teach and present. Undeterred by these obstacles on September 15th 2017 Make It Yours LLC opened. They chose to purchase a historic building in downtown Tecumseh in part to help revitalize downtown.
The gallery is a collection of fine gifts, antiques, handmade jewelry, paintings, essential oils, candles, luxury soaps and so much more. You can find something for everyone there at great prices! Most items are handcrafted by local artisans. We also make custom signs, business cards and t-shirts.
The 2nd Saturday of the month is designated community art day because art should be available to everyone. This class is free but a small donation is welcomed.
The gallery's motto is “We are only limited by our imagination and our imagination is limitless". For the latest information about our upcoming or past classes visit our Facebook page. You can book or ask about a class there as well. MiY offers a safe place for creative play and community enrichment. Having a place to be able to showcase and promote local artists is important to the mission of our gallery.
