Custom & Commission
a store named STUFF sells hundreds of custom and commissioned works of art every year. We partner with our makers to offer an expanded collection of works that are not always shown in the store. These projects could be as small as a custom sterling silver word ring to as large as a commissioned fine art painting. Owners Sloane and Casey have strong working relationships with all of the artists and makers they represent. This allows them to engage the artists/makers in creating original pieces on behalf of their customers. This is a short list of some of the projects they would like to work with you to complete:
- Sterling Silver Jewelry
- Beaded Handmade Jewelry
- Composition Jewelry
- Fine Art Paintings
- Abstract Paintings
- Assemblage/Collage Art Pieces
- Metal Sculpture
Please note: they offer multiples/quantities of one-of-kind gifts by artists and makers. If you need 50 gifts for employee appreciation, for example, they can work with you to have something hand made. There is more information about corporate gifts below.

Small Business Consulting
with S. Sloane Simmons and Casey Simmons
After working together for over 30 years, we discovered that we have developed a strategy for reaching goals and solving problems using a creative approach that is quite different from that of other business owners. The STUFF Sisters offer consulting focused on breakthrough thinking. Sloane and Casey Simmons work in tandem with you or your organization to energize your mind, break through mental obstacles, and help you develop a new way of thinking about your business or challenges.
Small Business Consulting is for you, whether you are dreaming about starting a small business, you're in those first few years of creation, or you are a seasoned business owner. Sloane and Casey can consult with you on all aspects of small business ownership. You select the theme and focus of each season. Many of our clients use us a couple of times a year to keep ideas fresh and to keep the momentum flowing in their business.
We encourage you to reach your own goals and to solve your own problems. All of our creative consulting is designed to empower you. Our sessions - big and small - are much like going to a gym for your mind. You come out energized, motivated, and drained. We help you begin the process of training your mind to reach further and bend thought in different directions. And, just like physical exercise, you may want to re-visit your trainer every so often to stay in touch with your form, goals, and achievements.
