"Little girl sniffing soap at a Unique Artisan Market

The Creative Wedge is an artisan shop like no other. It’s a little bit quirky and a whole lot of fun. If you’re looking for an exciting new shop near Waypoint Apartments, stop by the Creative Wedge for artisan gifts and whimsical treats.


Shopping at the Creative Wedge

The Creative Wedge strives to satisfy the eclectic tastes of both residents and visitors. Owners Barbara Densley and Sloane Solanto wanted to build an experience where shoppers could find whimsical, hand-crafted items. The shop has one-of-a-kind treasures and small-batch foods. Barbara and Sloane are active in the community and participate in public art projects and local fundraisers. You can find them at various festivals and nearby farmers markets.

The boutique atmosphere of the Creative Wedge is perfect for the delightful hodgepodge of merchandise it offers. Local paintings and artwork share space with bright ceramics and pottery. There are felted and goat milk soaps, handmade textiles, and soy wax candles. You’ll want to check out the great selection of cute nightlights and colorful journals, too.


Gourmet Food

Barbara and Sloane are admitted foodies, and their shop also has fine gourmet food gifts. Everything is unique and produced by regional vendors. Look forward to a large selection of farmstead cheese, as well as local craft beers and wines. An assortment of jams from It Started with a Fig and Belmont Peanuts is always available. There is also a tasty selection of locally-made sauces, crackers, and spices.


The Creative Wedge is an ideal gift-buying destination. It is more of a community oasis than an art store and less of a gift shop than a gourmet’s dream. If you like Hampton Roads’ unique flair, stop by nearby art galleries for more local art. Waypoint Apartments offers comfortable apartment living in a convenient location. It’s the perfect community to call home. For more information, you can contact us anytime.
