About Different Drummer

We Love Getting to Know Our Customers

Susan Amelia Smith, an art school graduate, has found her niche in the world of art through various forms like clothing design, painting, and crafting her greeting card line. Acquiring Different Drummer in 1989, she has maintained a philosophy of inclusivity, ensuring every customer finds something regardless of budget. With a knack for fostering community, Susan has made the store a welcoming hub where customers often return, feeling like family. Her daughter, Amelia Smith, joined the business after college, bringing her background in biomedical illustration and theater to infuse creativity into the store. Amelia now manages the daily operations, while Susan oversees broader aspects, both sharing a passion for curating unique items and providing personalized service to customers seeking that
special find.
