On to the next thing

goodbye memphis retail southmainartsdistrict

Well, you should all know by now that I have closed my location at 524 South Main Street. It may seem sudden, but I had been thinking about it for a long time. After American Apparel, Broken Arrow, and Pat Halloran's Art Attack closed, a *mystery tenant* took over their spaces and, my landlords told me, they had interest in mine.

  I’ve been paying more attention to what is happening in downtown Memphis, and trying to be a part of it outside of just living and operating a store. In some cases it is as simple as following social media accounts of figures and businesses, and in others it requires more action like researching what different organizations are doing and even attending events in my free time. The latter is much more involved, but certainly worth it. I started thinking about other cities I’ve lived in, and how they honor their musical and culinary arts, among other things. I wondered...
