- "Owl Onesie" by Gingiber, Paper, Scissors Little Rock vendor
If you are down in the River Market district this weekend for Riverfest, you might drop by a do-it-yourself studio and gift shop in the Tuf-Nut Building, Paper, Scissors, Little Rock
. Macy Madison
is planning on a soft opening for her store to take advantage of the weekend's festivities and plans a grand opening in late June.
The gifts will be "Arkansas and Southern inspired," Madison says, and the studio a place for folks to share creative ideas for such crafts as knitting, jewelry making and other Pinterest-inspired items. Among the artists the shop has signed on are fabric artist Gingiber (see above), Olivia Trimble of Fayetteville (hand painted wood signs) and Little Rock jeweler Cindi Booth, and Madison says she is working on a collaboration with five BFA graduates from UALR to show their work.
Madison is able to open the store thanks to microloans from the Kiva Zip program; see more about store on the P, S, LR Facebook. [link fixed]
