Local Shops Win National Awards
A month ago NICHE magazine awarded the MMoCA Museum Store the honor of "Best Museum Store" in the magazine's Top Retailer competition. Previously the store had won in the "Best Non-Profit Gallery" category in 2009. This is a huge honor for the store since it's a nationwide recognition. Congrats, Leslie and the crew at MMoCA!
MMoCA wasn't the only one though that walked away with a NICHE magazine honor though—Absolutely Art (shown in the photo above) scored a win in the Top Retailer category for "Local or Regional Craft Gallery." They too, have previously won an award—in 2010 for "Best Promotional Event" for their Re-Art SWAP recycling event. What an honor for Madison to be represented twice in Top Retailer!
