It's almost time!

We have had a productive and exciting month getting everything ready to launch our community space in Historic Longwood.  Our location is so nice, and we just learned a florist will be our newest neighbor!  So we now have a destination for you to enjoy with Barbed Wire Browns Community Art Gallery and Makers Space, Zanzibar Coffee House, the Wild Hare Farm market, Nu Naturals body products shop,  a Barber shop, Pete's Eats deli, an antique shop and now a florist.  The Craft Shack and some other lovely shops are just a short walk from us also!  We are at the sun rail stop In Longwood so you can relax and ride right to our back door! Or we have great parking next to our building! 

So you can grab a friend, jump on Sunrail or hop in your car, chat on the ride, grab a coffee, shop and be inspired in our gallery, perhaps take a class, gather some flowers, some organic locally grown produce, pick up some essential oils or get your nails done, choose from several options for a tasty lunch, check out the awesome mural that's a work in progress at the corner of Church street and Ronald Reagan Blvd., stroll the historic district, take a tour of one of the original buildings, discover some other shops scattered on your stroll, learn some history, and this is just a few of the possibilities!

We are telling a redemptive story through our art work- Our artwork and our store are all focused on recycled and repurposed materials, basically Redeeming junk is our focus. We salvage wood, metals, wire, old jewelry, basically anything that can be given another chance instead of the trash pile. Plus we have lots of people joining in now and gathering things for us to rework and breath new life into.    Come see what that looks like when we open!
