Dickinson & Wait: A Made in America Mecca

BY CHERYL L. SERRA

 

Made in America is more than a catchy tag line for Debbie Dickinson and Meredith Wait. It’s a way of honoring artists and craftspeople by showcasing their American-made wares. Dickinson & Wait Craft Gallery in Shepherdstown, wv, is their mecca.
“We absolutely love working with the craftspeople we work with,” Wait says of the business that opened in 1991. “We’ve watched a lot of these people raise their kids and send them to college.”
Dickinson and Wait have a personal relationship with the approximately 150 artists and craftspeople with whom they work. Many have been friends of theirs for more than two decades. The gallery is a well-held commercial anchor in this thriving artists’ community.
