Economic Development
Last week, Economic Development visited with Stone and downtown Escondido. They got to see the master himself, James Stone, working on next month’s edition of the Collectors Club (pieces that are delivered directly to a customer’s door) and a live preview of this month’s edition. 
Carol and James explained that pivoting their business to launch the Collector’s Club during COVID-19 has been instrumental in saving their business.  They are immensely grateful for the community’s support and the customer demand to keep the flames going in the studio.
