"Thank you for all your patience with me regarding my never ending supply of questions. You will learn as we hopefully continue to do business together that I enjoy learning all I can before diving in to the investment. As a compliment to your business, please know that I probably went on to every Kinkade signature gallery website before choosing to order through yours. I found your site to be very informative and inviting. I find myself taking a few minutes a day on it in hopes of finding my next piece....It was a pleasure working with you."
We have one of the largest selections of Thomas Kinkade Artwork in the USA, over 600 images on display in our 3000 square foot Gallery. I met Thom, for the first time in 1989, when I was President of NALED. We remained friends until his passing in April of 2012. All of us, that were fortunate to know Thom, always admired his spirit and appreciated his marvelous talent. As one of the last remaining Thomas Kinade Signature Galleries in the USA, it is my pleasure to contiune Thom's legacy and offer an extensive selection of his artwork that shares his messages of "Hope" and "Joy" through the "Light" of his artwork.
We also own the largest collectible gallery in the USA. Our roots go back 5 decades. Our first shop opened in a small shop in Shrewsbury, Massachusetts; the vision of George and Edna Samara. Their success enabled them to open a second location, 274 South Street in Shrewsbury which is over 3500 square feet of artwork and thousands of quality, unique gifts and collectibles.
Today, current owner Kevin Samara, brings the Shropshire Shop to new levels as he develops it's presence on the internet . Kevin is very proud of his family's legacy and the fact it has grown to be one of the largest collectible businesses in the nation.
As former president of the National Association of Limited Edition Dealers (NALED), Kevin strives to continue his parent's legacy: to be the best by honoring our commitment to you the customer.
Thank you for visiting our site and we look forward to meeting many of you in our shops.
