The Art & Soul market place has fair trade and handmade items, some are from Greensboro artists. In the above photo, proprietor Jenny Stickrath is sitting on a bed of pillows in her new shop at 2140 Lawndale Drive- two doors down from Hops Burger Bar. Previously, her store was located on Spring Garden Street. The move to a larger property gives Art & Soul a chance to expand their clothing line, housewares, and offer classes and special events. The Lawndale store opened this past Friday night and, if the first few days are any indication, the new location will keep her quite busy.
If you missed Art & Soul's grand opening on Lawndale and if you'll miss the shop at 1938 Spring Garden Street, don't worry. Tonight, her very creative sister Cristine Brown will open a pottery, art and lighting store in Art & Soul's former location. Stop by and wish either of them good luck and maybe even find some holiday gifts. If you believe in buying local, you just may have found another destination- or two. Nothing beats having an owner on site for service with a smile.
