The owner of Dovetail Artisans seeks someone to carry on Dovetail tradition in Glenside

Elayne Aion, the owner of the Dovetail Artisans, has announced that she plans to retire at the end of 2020. She has owned the gift shop for almost 14 years and a shop with the Dovetail name has been located at 105 East Glenside Avenue for 40 years.

When Aion took over the Dovetail tradition she had a 10-year plan for the store. She is now in her 14th year.

She describes owning the store as a labor of love and that is why 10 years became 14 years, but the pandemic helped her realize that she could retire. Not because the business is struggling, but because she has appreciated life slowing down a bit during the pandemic and providing more time for family.

Aion is seeking someone who is interested in carrying on Dovetail Artisans through the purchase of the inventory (so there isn’t a huge investment).

If you are interested in learning more about this opportunity, contact Aion at (215) 803-8954, or, or stop by the store.
