A new community market is set to open September 15 at 50 Antique Way in Keo, the spot that dedicated antiques shoppers will remember as the former location of Morris Antiques. The Orchards at Keo is compromised of 25,000 square feet of warehouse space, some of which has been turned into booths for art vendors and local makers. “We’re giving businesses the opportunity to have a second storefront,” says Stacy Jeans, who co-owns the business with Karon Weatherford. “For some people who do crafts, this will be their first storefront. They have a place to sell their pieces, and we take care of all the social media and help them sell their product.” Vendors include artists (such as blown glass sculptor James Hayes and Miller’s Mud pottery), furniture makers, and purveyors of local honey and homemade soap scrubs.
Call (501) 519-2957 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or if you are interested in becoming a tenant. Watch their Facebook page for continued updates.
