KEARNEY — A new downtown shop offering local, vintage and wholesale arts and crafts opened Monday.
All My Art and Soul at 2114 Central Ave. is owned by Etsy artist Brandi Light and features a variety of creative pieces.
“It’s a very eclectic mix of things,” Light said to describe her store, which is in the former location of All I Want For, a clothing boutique that has moved to Elm Creek.
Among the items in Light’s store are home decor, mugs, baby booties, adult coloring books, art supplies and air plant terrariums, to name a few.
“I’d like it to be, in a sense, an Etsy store that’s real life,” Light said.
Etsy is a website that connects users online and offline to make, sell and buy unique goods.
Though she does sell other products, eventually Light would like most of her merchandise to be from local artists. She is looking for more area vendors wishing to sell and display their artwork.
“I think people like to support the people in their community. It’s fun to see what people can make,” she said.
In 2016, she hopes to offer classes to teach people how to make Pinterest-type projects such as jewelry, dream catchers and drawings.
A ribbon cutting for the store will be Nov. 12.
