About Us


Historic Downtown Village of Sarasota

The Artful Giraffe is proud to be part of the Historic Downtown Village.  The Village is named for a cluster of historic cottages along Fruitville Road between US 301 and Osprey Avenue.  Built in the 1920's by John Ringling to house his circus workers, the bungalows have evolved into a Historic Shopping District.  All of the Village businesses are independently-owned and operated. Paint, Sip, and Shop on select Friday nights each month. Bring your friends and spend the evening with us!
