Timeless Home Gallery features home décor by local artisans and craftsman. It’s a unique co-op for talented locals to sell their wares without consigning. All sales go directly to the artists.
Here you’ll find everything to compliment your home decor, including pottery, fused glass, wall hangings, water colors, photography, hard wood flooring, mantels, locally milled wood slabs, reclaimed wood heirloom furniture, vintage textiles, and much more. The theme here is functional and artful home decor. Come on in and see unique pieces you won’t find anywhere else, crafted by local artisans.
We caught up with owner Lynn Glocker as she was busy on her first day in the new showroom in the Cameo Plaza on Highway 4. The floors inside help tell the story at the heart of the business – recycled pine and cedar from the old White Pines bar, rough sawn oak planks from a large tree that fell nearby in 2010 – it’s a place where you can experience the raw materials of the surrounding forests transformed into functional art for the home.
Before opening Timeless Home, Lynn and John Glocker specialized in furniture made from repurposed redwood water tanks and wine barrels, often traveling from their Arnold base to arts and crafts shows. They saw a need for a local gallery to show not only their work, but also the many talented local artists that use the surrounding landscape as their inspiration as well as their source material. Local is the thread that ties all the work together – the artists must be local, currently there are 18 on display, including photographers, potters, woodworkers, glass artists and painters. For the visitor, it’s an opportunity to own a piece of Calaveras County.
Lynn has also found a receptive market in the second-home buyer. She works with realtors helping to stage Arnold area houses and sometimes the agents will buy their clients gift certificates to Timeless Home, creating a nice little cross promotional loop. Glocker says the showroom samples also generate a fair amount of custom design orders for the artists on display – some of whom also provide interior construction and finishing services. Word of mouth, as well as newspaper and social media help round out the marketing plan for Timeless Home, and once the dust settles, they will likely hold a grand re-opening celebration later this year. Keep your eye out for that and stop into the Cameo Plaza next time you are in town.
