Crystal Maury - Owner
Crystal opened Signature 81 in March of 2013 because of her love for everything handmade. Originally from Utica, NY she has always had a passion for shopping local and now supports over 70 micro-entrepreneurs in her shop. She likes different, one of a kind items that make a statement. She fills the shop with re-purposed furniture, kitchen items, paper goods, hand-poured candles, vintage finds, and much more. She opened the Studios & Classroom at 11 ½ West Park Row for others to teach classes (which she loves to take!) and have events. Most of her events have been thought up while sitting on the couch in the studio or at a potluck dinner with friends. She also started Destination Create Festival which is held every year the first weekend in May at MKJ Farms in Deansboro NY. She is a board member of the Clinton Chamber and works hard to make an impact in the community. She spends a lot of her time working with small businesses, the Chamber of Clinton Art & Music Festival, and working to hard to develop a passion for buying handmade within the surrounding communities. She loves shopping at local markets, learning to repurpose items, campfires, traveling and candy. She hates cooking.
