This past summer, HAND/EYE Magazine special correspondent Abbey Chase visited one of her favorite places in Atlanta, Georgia: Mingei World Arts. Mingei is a store like a museum, where everything has a story. Ann Van Slyke and Ellen McFee travel the world and personally select unique hand-made items directly from the artisans and antique markets of the world. You never know what you will find
Below is an interview Abbey did for HAND/EYE Online with Ann and Ellen to learn more about the beginnings of their business and how they have grown over the past 18 years.
