Updating Empty Storefront Windows


My friend Regan and I are creating indieNC displays and curating artist installations in empty storefronts here in North Carolina. Here is our first window at 230 Fayetteville Street in Raleigh. What a fun project! I grew up in a small town in Virginia where I walked to work and lived in the downtown, and loved that. I would dream of ways to revitalize the downtown that was filled with mostly antique stores and lawyers offices. I had festivals, shops and restaurants fully planned out in my mind (still do). I miss the close-knit community and Sunday night Bluemont Concert Series every summer, and am proud to be bringing a small part of my community-mindedness to Raleigh.


Participating designers in this month’s window: Captive Collective, Dana LeBlanc, Element Clay Studios, iro handbags, Modern Radar, Revamp, Sew Bliss Sew, ShopLuella,  and sara p. All products will be available for purchase in the indieNC shop.

    Thanks, Nicole! It is a very fun project. The most satisfying part of doing this first one was seeing the signage on the window.

    What a great idea, there is so much wasted canvas out there. I have a good friend that owns an old building and she has a restaurant and I was passing through looking for store fronts when I came across this page. We could use some of this charm in our town.
