Updates Updates

Here are a couple photos of the art and crafts available
as well as the sign I painted for the salon!

As you can see, there is still some empty space in the salon...
But it's all coming together. I guess great things take more time than you expect them to...
I think the owner, Scott, pictured above, plans on getting 2 more salon
chairs and a couch or some chairs for the waiting area...

The Space

Here are photos of the art boutique! I still have much to do here... There are still many artists that have sent work, but it's not in the shop just yet, and eventually, we'll have more tables to put things on, soo, all in good time. Earlier I stated that the entire shop would be opening June 16th, but I think it might take a while longer! Hopefully some time next month, or early August... I still have to make fliers and posters and hand out cards and just do all that promotional stuff around the Chatham/Springfield area.

Oh! I also hand painted a big wooden sign for the store front!
It's all old-timey and charming looking, haha!
I don't have photos yet, but I will soon!

Some artists you can expect to discover...

Something New...

Introducing a new and most unique little shop in Chatham, Illinois! One half is the Down To There Hair Salon which was created by and is managed by stylist Scott Plate. The other half is a charming little art gallery curated by Brett Manning. We hope you come in and enjoy some pampering while also exploring the arts and crafts made by many talented folks! We host an international selection of young artists, some coming from Chicago, others Australia and the U.K. with more on the way! Down To There is located in Chatham's historic town square, close to the old rail road station. We hope to see you soon!
