Discover the art of making.

Welcome to Sanctuary Handcrafted Goods! We're a small independent retailer proudly offering unique and affordable jewelry, accessories, fine art, home decor and gifts. We represent nearly 100 makers, and in addition to our well-curated selection, we are known for outstanding customer service and giving back to the community.

Our space is situated among the shops and restaurants in the The Village at Grand Traverse Commons, a mixed-use historic redevelopment of the asylum formerly known as the Traverse City State Hospital.
