The Warzynski’s are keeping Artful Living in the family. The shop was started by Ryan Warzynski’s aunt and uncle 17 years ago in Atlanta. When his aunt and uncle retired, the Warzynskis thought it would be the perfect opportunity to transition from the corporate world to owning their own company in Carmel.

“We watched them be successful and have fun with it,” Ryan Warzynski said.

The Warzynskis each had a 13-year career with KARR Auction Services and relocated from Wisconsin to Texas to Indiana for work. They said they’ve settled in Carmel and are excited to raise their family and launch their business there.

The boutique-style gift shop features a wide variety of unique items, including personalized signs, coffee mugs, jewelry, collectibles, figurines and home decor. A majority of the items, ranging in price from $3 to $300, are locally or American made.

“There’s just so many unique things. Your eyes are always active. It’s just fun to look at all the inventory,” Jeannie Warzynski said. “There truly is something for everyone.”

Artful Living will open March 1 on the south end of Clay Terrace between Old Navy and Orvis. The couple also owns Tucker Automotive Group in Westfield.
