About Us

 

15 STEPS

15 STEPS has celebrated American Crafts since 1981, offering a diverse and carefully curated collection of jewelry, ceramics, glass, wood, metal, fiber and art for the wall – all of it made by talented local and national artists.  We are delighted to announce we are merging with our business neighbors, Breathe, and expanding our merchandise assortment into women's clothing and accessories as well as housewares and kitchen wares.

 

Our Promise

We will continue our commitment to search for American made products that display quality, imagination and value. We will strive to delight you. We will be here, in person, so you can stop in and say hello. We will do our very best to wear the many “hats” that small business owners don every day with good grace and aplomb. We will continue to give our support and service to this community because this community has given both of us so very much.

  

Our Philosophy

Here at 15 STEPS our goals are simple:

We will strive to make a living in an ethical way.

We will always sell great products at a fair price.

We will support American artists and we will tell their stories whenever we can.

We will connect with and support our community.

We will do good business and do good at the same time.

 

 

Community Connections/Our Philanthropy

We are proud to give back to our community by serving on government and not for profit boards and committees.

 

Our philanthropy is focused on our three “adopted” not-for-profits – Hospicare, the SPCA, and the Ithaca Health Alliance/Ithaca Free Clinic.

In addition, we donate throughout the year to many area not-for-profits for their fundraising events.
