For months now, we’ve been working hard to create a website where you can purchase art, books, and gifts. We are finally up and running! It’s called Heirloom Art & Co. and you can find us at heirloomartco.com. Same great product and art you’ve come to love at Zion’s Mercantile, but now available to buy online! To celebrate, use promo code HEIRLOOM20 this week to receive 20% off your first purchase online.
Over the next couple of months, we’ll also be changing the name of the store from Zion’s Mercantile to Heirloom Art & Co. Same great service, just an updated look and feel. Come by our store in the Riverwoods to see the changes, and stay tuned for promotions coming your way!

Join us for our fifth Hearthside Dinner Event, celebrating the Fourth of July! We’ll enjoy dinner at La Jolla Groves, then Reid Moon will tell little-known stories from our American History. You will learn fascinating insights about the printing of Thomas Paine’s “Common Sense” in 1776; hear an almost completely unknown story about the construction of the “Statue of Liberty”; and hear about the appearance of the Founding Fathers and signers of the Declaration of Independence in the St. George Temple. Original books, manuscripts and artifacts will be on display–including a copy of Thomas Paine’s “Common Sense” which was printed in January 1776.
Tickets ($30) include dinner, the presentation, and a small gift from the store as a souvenir of the event. Seats will go quickly, so call 801-802-6064 to reserve.
Every couple of weeks, we gather at La Jolla Groves to share a meal and learn about an artist, tradition, or piece of history. We call them our Hearthside Dinners and would love for you to join us.
On June 2, we have invited art historian Micah Christensen to teach us about Minerva Teichert. When Teichert finished her art studies in 1917, she and her husband moved to a ranch in Wyoming. There, she was not only isolated from the art world, but the young couple couldn’t afford art supplies. For a time, she drew on scraps of wood and bits of paper instead.
Over time, however, Teichert found ways to use her artwork to help others. She gave art lessons out of her home, donated paintings to BYU to pay for her children’s tuition, and painted over 400 murals, some of which are in temples. She is most well-known for her paintings of scenes from the Book of Mormon, and for her paintings of the Savior.
The event includes dinner at La Jolla Groves, the Minerva Teichert presentation, and a giclee print of “Triumphant Return” (pictured above). Call (801)802-6064 to purchase tickets ($25).
