We started out as an online greeting card company in 1999. Named Ain't That Thum'-Thin, we were a small but solid little online store that was the perfect side job that stoked the owners creative side without becoming all consuming. In 2006 a local business person with a vacant commercial space in downtown Spokane approached the owner with a great suggestion. It was a timely offer, for the owner and other members of the business had been secretly planning on opening an art gallery. One month later the store opened on June 24, 2006. As always, a business plan is subject to revision. The recent economic crisis affected everyone, but at the store it was anticipated. The store opened during the early warnings of the crisis and was prepared in its business plan to take the next step and to slowly thrive as we carefully grew. In the midst of the doom and gloom we took the next step and the store evolved from a strict 2D art gallery to what it is today. We removed the Gallery of THUM name and became The Heart of Spokane in December of 2011, an art and antiques boutique. We love it and so do our customers.
