Storefront Open Days for 2017


Despite my natural hermit tendencies, we’ve decided to again open the Lost Art Press storefront on the second Saturday of each month. Hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

In addition to carrying our complete line of books and tools from Crucible, we also sell blemished books for 50 percent off (cash only on those) and special T-shirts and posters that are available only at the storefront.

The storefront is located at 837 Willard St. in Covington, Ky.

Since we bought the building in 2015, Covington has blossomed with new restaurants and developments that we are pleased to be part of. You can now stay in the beautiful Hotel Covington (a seven-minute walk from our storefront), get a drink at Braxton Brewing or one of the dozen other new watering holes. And there are new restaurants too numerous to mention.

Oh, and you can walk across the Roebling Suspension Bridge and there’s this other place, Cincinnati, to visit.

Work on the storefront has been proceeding at a good clip. By January we should have the basement all concreted and climate-controlled for wood storage (my first ever place to store wood!). I’ve been working at the back of the ground floor all month, eliminating the last of the purple glitter from the Blaze bar.

And, most exciting, we’ve upgraded the urinal with new plumbing.

  1. You know, I often refer to my coffee mug as my most critical shop tool, but now that you mention it, a urinal would be mighty handy. 🙂

    “I’ve been working at…eliminating the last of the purple glitter ”
    That’s funny. You say that as if glitter can actually be eliminated!

  3. Bartee says:

    GREAT picture of the building. It is just wonderful.

  4. I can’t say enough good things about my last visit to the Covington / Cincinnati area. I’ll definitely be returning this March to visit the store and the Lie-Nielsen event…..and to drink / stock up on Braxton beers 🙂

    My wife said that is the sexiest building she’s seen….

    She goes to central Kentucky every summer with her mother to visit family (mostly cemeteries, now), and is going to try to make it to your place for the August opening, for me.

    I have always wondered how you are using the upper floors of this wonderful building.

  7. Really looking forward to visiting in April when I see family in KY!

  8. I love your building, you’ve done a wonderful job with it.

    Who knew this was only 30 min from my house. You can count on a visit from me at some point.

    Chris, this may be not the right place for this question, but how are you controlling the climate in your basement? I just moved my shop into a basement in my new house and have discovered that it leaks like a sieve when it rains. Any ideas?

    Nice! Would love to come up from Berea and visit. Do you have any scratch & ding copies of the Anarchist’s Design Book?
