JAM Art & Supplies to close

Jan. 21, 2019

JAM Art & Supplies is closing Feb. 8.

The nonprofit organization has served as a creative reuse supply store and artist advocacy group in Sioux Falls for almost five years.

“JAM was a fun, inclusive, special place for everyone, but sometimes financial demands become too great to overcome,” executive director Jess Miller, media manager Tana Zwart and the board of directors wrote in a post on the group’s Facebook page.

All inventory in the store at Sixth Street and Phillips Avenue is half-price.

Miller said the space is overflowing with donated supplies, especially with fabric, yarn, stamps, scrapbooking pages, cards, envelopes, frames and binders.

JAM’s board made the decision last week to close the store.

“As far as I know, we will cease to exist,” Miller said of the group, “but that doesn’t mean the concept of a creative reuse community has to cease.”

The artist studios on the first floor of the L’Abri Building, which are leased through Murray Properties, will continue to be open.
