WHO WE ARE...
Yak Arts is a single shop, that is family owned and operated. Though there aren't many of us we do our best to have fun, and welcome the world into our little oasis centralized around creativity and fun. For all of the items in the store, each one has been hand selected one by one, meaning that each items comes with a story, and a future adventure. We travel directly to source all of our goods from the artisans who make them and offer customers the opportunity to order custom goods. When we aren't travelling, or making new aquisitions we are here to be helpful and share each item's story, help people find thoughtful things, and most importantly make a postive contribution to their experience and memory of Cape Cod.
Robert Dalton is the owner and president, he holds a degree in Fine Art and worked as a metal sculptor and printmaker before establishing the business in 1978. He continues to live in the building and work as the primary international buyer, travelling annually to England, Indonesia, and Mexico.
