About Us



Crystal Maury, Owner and Craft Extraordinaire

With a love for everything handmade, Crystal Maury opened Signature 81 in March of 2013. A Utica, New York native, Crystal is proud to share her passion for local goods and supports over 70 micro-entrepreneurs. Nestled in the foothills of the Adirondacks, Signature 81 brings vintage restoration and artisanal goods to the village of Clinton. Whether you are looking for a statement piece or a one-of-a-kind gift, a token from visiting Hamilton College, or something for yourself, Crystal will be happy to guide you and can offer wonderful selections.

In 2016, Signature 81 grew into a second location focusing on artist studios and a unique classroom space. Located at 11 1/2 West Park Row just off the Village Green, this space is a creative hub for both beginners and more advanced students. From hand lettering workshops to essential oils, needle felting to bullet journaling, the Studios are sure to entice even the most novice artist. 

Living and working in the village of Clinton has provided wonderful opportunities and Crystal is proud to serve on the Clinton Chamber of Commerce as well as direct the Clinton Arts and Music Festival every August. 

In her free time, you will find Crystal hunting down the latest vintage finds, scouring flea markets, and spending time with her family, friends, and sweet cats.
