Though SAM’s gift shop covers a lot of bases, there are three things it does exceptionally well. First, you are unlikely to find a better curated collection of regionally made jewelry; well-priced, daring, and reflective of our environment, the pieces are wearable art. Second, digital cameras have changed the way we document our lives, sure, but check out SAM Shop’s selection of Lomo and trick cameras to truly alter your photographic documents. Lastly, that cliche of museum gift shops, the art calendar, is alive and artfully dodging its detractors here. Go for a pocket-sized, spiral bound personal planner and let gorgeous watercolors or inspiring woodcuts render your digital PDA a thing of the past.
