Hand Painted Tiles Make a Great Gift

Having trouble finding the right holiday gift for that special someone? What something unique and unusual? Have you considered hand painted tile?

In fact, some of our customers have even framed our tiles! Here’s three way to use our tiles for a thoughtful holiday gift. Make sure to call and verify stock before you order because we have limited quantities of these hand painted tiles on hand.
