Out of Africa; it's all about the one-of-a-kind art

While you're out and about this weekend, stop by Out of Africa for their big summer sale. For the first time since 1998 they are having a huge clearance sale during the month of August. A lot of the merchandise is on sale for 25-50% off, which is a pretty good deal considering their prices are always good.

I collect African masks and you can always find a unique authentic display of African masks at Out of Africa. They also have lots of jewelry, baskets, mudcloth, soapstone sculptures and so much more. It's the perfect place to get one-of-a-kind gifts that people love to receive, especially house warming gifts, it's all quirky and fun, there's always something different each time you visit.


Trina Collins, of Gifford Art Stroll fame, along with husband, David, has operated the store for the past decade and has recently added the works of local artists. Out of Africa is exhibiting works by Karen Deilke, Michael Tames, Margrit Rose Peoples, Neith Nevelson, Julia Polonyi and of course, Trina Collins.  

We always talk about the "old Grove," well, this is the place that gives you the feel of those older days when boutiques and unique stores would be housed in old shotgun houses up and down Oak Avenue.  You get a special feeling when you walk in.

Out of Africa is located on the Mayfair Promenade, off of Florida Avenue. They are open Thursday and Friday from 3:00 pm to 6:00 pm and Saturday and Sunday from noon until 6:00 pm.

David Collins goes to the outback of Africa, to villages & small communities to hand pick items/crafts/art, from small shops & individuals who utilize natural local African hand made dyed cloth, stone & wood products which they hand craft into some very beautiful & interesting pieces - authentic, authentic, authentic.
