As we have posted before, our community is the most important and influential factor of our success. Without our customers supporting our business and spreading the word, Blue Door Beads wouldn’t exist! We are incredibly grateful for our community’s support, and we want to do as much as we can to support other local businesses along Piedmont Avenue.
To help do this, Blue Door Beads participates in what has been known, up until this point, as the Piedmont Avenue Art Walk. After doing some research and talking to other merchants along Piedmont Avenue, we discovered that not every business was featuring local art during Art Walk. Either they didn’t have the room, it was difficult for their business to have an “artsy” angle, or they didn’t have the support & resources they needed to add a little art to their environment. Sara Mancini of Blue Door Beads and Kate Morrow of Resurrect answered the call to action, and the two Piedmont Avenue business owners have joined forces to breathe new life into Third Thursdays on the Avenue!
Art Walk has now become the Piedmont Ave. Stroll, an event that has expanded to include more community activities, such as trunk shows, demonstrations, live music and more, all within the stores along Piedmont Avenue. The Stroll still happens from 6pm-9pm, and this month’s Stroll is happening Thursday, March 21st. Some of the 18 participating businesses will be featuring special deals during that time, including Cato’s Ale House, which will give you 30% off your first round of drinks with a merchant receipt from any of the participating businesses. A few other participating business include The Rare Bird, Nathan & Co., CK Gallery, and Calm, A Salon. Visit the Piedmont Ave. Stroll website for a full list of participating businesses and to find out more information about the Stroll. We’ll see you this Thursday!
