I am so happy—the pieces exceeded my expectations. I had never seen a wave ring in person and it is stunning. Absolutely perfect. The same with the cuff. These are just such special pieces. I like the bridge cuff very much—the fit is perfect and it gives a great line. I may want to do this in other colors since I do not have a lot of bracelets. The earrings came out just as I wanted and I may ask Earl to make other stud earrings to match my other pendants…
The Tafoya pieces were also wonderful, with the Thunderbird just as I hoped. Finally, the unity necklace is more delicate than I anticipated which makes me like it even more. My other Tafoya necklaces are larger and this is a nice subtle piece for outfits that call for “less necklace.”
I could go on and on but I was basically speechless when I opened the box. This was the best gift I could give myself and I’m thrilled that we can continue to support artists during the pandemic.
Finally, it was great working with you on these items. I know it was a lot to manage and I cannot thank you enough. You are patient with my emails and very helpful in working with the artists. I know we will continue to work together.

Thank you again for the print sale called “Breath of Life” from Cape Dorset. I received it and it’s more beautiful than expected. The print is amazing.
It sure was a pleasure dealing with your gallery.
Wishing you all the best.
The necklace arrived today! I’d almost think that little bird flew part of the way himself it was such a ridiculously quick delivery. He’s beautiful, and I love him. Thank you so much (and Mary too).

Excellent website that is easy to navigate.
I have never had a bad experience with home and away. I generally buy 1 or 2 inuit pieces a year as a gift for my wife and David has always come through with something awesome
Hi David,The well packed package came through today in perfect shape, all in less than a week
That piece is one of the finest work I have seen and now sits on the mantle. I would recommend your gallery to anyone.
David is a gentleman. He is a man of his word and I will continue to be a return customer. I would recommend him to all who are interested in Native American arts.
I absolutely love the Mary Tafoya necklace I purchased. The purchase transaction was done promptly and I received my necklace within a few days of ordering. I couln’t be happier. Thank You, David.
I just love my basket. Thank you for the wonderful service. The packing and shipping was excellent and speedy. I highly recommend Home & Away Gallery and I definitely would be a repeat customer.
For me as a satisfied customer, I can highly recommend the Home and Away Gallery.The Owner David Shultz is very helpful. He offers a great selection of different Art & Crafts,such as baskets, sculptures, prints and much more.
Top quality merchandise and great customer service.
Is there anyone better?
Home & Away’s Gallery Director, David Shultz, was tremendously informative and responsive during our recent visit. He seemed willing and eager to discuss issues related to inuit culture and art, answered questions, and yet gave us space to enjoy and discuss. His follow through during and after purchase, to ensure a seamless experience, was notable.
Home and Away is one of my favorite Native American Arts Galleries. David is very knowledgeable and delivers very personalized service.
Very knowledgeable on Inuit art, has found several requested pieces of high quality and within requested price range. Packages purchases very well, no damage yet.
My wife and I discovered Home & Away a number of years ago through a gallery listing in an art magazine, when the business was new. We have become friends of David and Ann over the years and trust their advice and appreciate their integrity. We have purchased Native American pieces ranging from the more expensive museum quality Inuit sculptures and Northwest Coast masks, to inexpensive jewelry for gifts.
The gallery’s inventory and variety are impressive, and there is good representation of recognized artists, including local native artisans. It is a pleasure to be able to visit a source of such high quality native arts in New England, without having to travel across the country or to Canada. And Home & Away’s web site is always available.
David provided such wonderful customer service and expedited delivery service as well. All objects arrived safely and were just as they appeared in their on-line photo gallery. Nakwesee has truly an amazing gift and her love of the craft glows in the pieces that I have chosen and received today.
As artists represented by Home & Away Gallery I must say that David is the most trustworthy gallery owner we have encountered thus far. Buy with confidence, there will be no B.S. when dealing with Home and Away!
Home and Away always has a wonderful selection of artists, styles, communities, time periods – you name it. It is clear that they have long loved the art they represent, and their depth of knowledge in the field shines, as does their active commitment to those they serve.
As serious collectors of Inuit art, we find Home and Away to be our most favorite gallery. We’re always comfortable making our purchases there. We’ve introduced several friends who were just becoming familiar with this area of art, and they also enjoyed exploring the gallery and even made their first purchases there.
My wife and I love to visit Home & Away. The collection of art, baskets and jewelry we find there is of the highest quality and the pieces represent such a diverse cross section of Native American styles.
During the year the owner, David, has artisans visit the gallery to display their work and meet his clients. These visits provide a rare chance for insite into the culture of the artists and how they have mastered their craft.
David has always been the most wonderful host. He gladly offers his knowledge of the works that he sells so not only do we purchase something we like, we feel connected to it because understand who made it and how it was made. Sometimes if there is time he shares a wonderful story of how he came to have some of the pieces that are in the gallery.
We feel lucky to have found Home & Away and will continue to visit for many years to come.
Worked with David on assessing a print
Couldn’t have had a better experience anyway – would refer anyone to them.
I’ve purchased several things from the gallery, and have always been impressed with David’s great communication and attention to detail. The works he carries speaks for itself. I love Earl Plummer’s jewelery, and highly recommend any piece by this talented craftsman.
I also appreciate the range of inuit art available. I have collected Kananginak images and Etulu Etidloie’s sculptures for years, and it’s great to know Home & Away carries these items as well. In sum, highly recommended.
I received the Jeremy Frey basket today and it arrived safe and sound and is gorgeous. Thank you so much for your kindness and professionalism. I will keep my eye on your great website and will look forward to doing business again with you soon. You have another fan of Home and Away!
I just received the bracelet and it’s absolutely beautiful!! I love it!I just received the bracelet and it’s absolutely beautiful!! I love it! Thanks so much for working with me to find the perfect bracelet. I really appreciate it.
David, I have enjoyed doing business with you and your Gallery since February 2003, when I saw a stone sculpture in one of your ads.
I appreciate your advice and counsel when I am trying to decide between two pieces. I find your advice to be honest and have not been led astray.
It’s always a pleasure to see you at various markets around the country. I do check your website regularly and will continue to do so. Also, when I was searching for just the right artwork by George Longfish your help in locating what I had been looking for was appreciated. I still enjoy that multimeda piece which hangs in my bedroom.
Continued good business and I look forward to seeing the next exciting artwork on your
website. Thanks, B.
Oh, I wanted to do this review in Inuktiuk but it didn’t seem to be one of my choices. Just kidding. Wish I did know the language.
David, the Jeremy Frey basket is exquisite.
Thank you for showcasing quality Inuit, Native American and Alaska Native arts in your fine online gallery.
In appreciation of your professionalism,
Dear David, The bear arrived! So quickly: a supersonic flying bear, presumably. It is in excellent condition as well. Great packing. Great service. Very friendly approach on your part. If it ever arises, I’ll be sure to recommend you to anyone who asks for my advice. Thank you very much.
