On a recent visit to Rio Verde, Arizona, Jeff and Debbie took us to the cool town of Cave Creek. The main thoroughfare is lined with unique shops, art galleries, restaurants and even a shop called The Town Dump, a quirky gift shop that, sadly, has closed after 42 years in business. Lucky for us, Rare Earth Gallery was open for business and thriving, self-described as “The world’s largest mineral and landscape home décor gallery.” Some of their statement pieces were priced near a hundred thousand dollars!
Looking for something unique, but a bit more affordable, we found a set of very unique marble (I think) coasters to take home to Kyle for a Christmas present. The store wrapped them very carefully and once they made the trip home, I set about to design and build a worthy holder to store and display this cool set of four coasters.
Just for fun, here’s a two-minute video tour of Rare Earth Gallery in Cave Creek, Arizona!
