Tell us about your Tiny Fingers Craft Days for kids
Tiny Fingers Craft Day is a great activity for boys and girls aged 2-10. Every Saturday from 10 AM until 3 PM we offer a new craft and announce the crafts in advance on our social media. Each craft helps develop fine motor skills and allows children to be creative and there is always a fresh pot of coffee for the parents.
You also offer candle crafting classes, can you tell us about that?
Our candle crafting classes are great for all ages! Along with our regularly scheduled events, we offer in-store or mobile parties for 6 or more. We love hosting birthday parties for ages 4+ where each child will get to create their own votive candle. For adults, we offer candle crafting classes where you will learn the intricacies of candle crafting and pour your own custom scented and colored soy candle! We are also excited to offer fundraising activities for any event and custom poured candles for any occasion.

Our best sellers at Jiva are items from our line of Coachella Valley’s unique artists. We offer skin care, paintings, tie dye, souvenirs, and everything in between! The great thing about our items is that your purchase supports the local community and that is our passion.
