After more than 46 years in business, the Artisan Shop & Gallery will be closing its doors.

The store, a gift shop, opened in 1968 on Green Bay Road, and was owned by Lila Goddard. In 1972, it moved to its current space at Plaza del Lago. Current owner Lynn Hansen bought the store from Goddard in 1983. Hansen also opened up two other locations, since closed, in Long Grove and at The Glen.
