A week ago, our friends at Mahonia took a few days off, and in that few days’ time, made a mad dash of a move down the block to a much larger, and much more sun-filled space.
Happily situated in the former East Market home of Parkside Bikes, owner Bridget Davis has been bursting with pride over square footage that’s far more than doubled, allowing more room for staples we know Mahonia for- airplants, fiddle leaf fig trees, and fresh cut stems mingle with books, candles, and gifts. However, there are a few newcomers to this more roomy scene…
Huge, brightly lit nooks show off the staff’s styling know-how, weaving together gorgeous displays anyone would want to recreate in their own home; snake plants of all varieties mix with agates and branches, books and art.
Along a rear wall, a terrarium station invites hands to play in the sand, creating miniature worlds of cut glass, pea gravel, air plants, dried thistle.
With huge front windows facing Market Street and all-glass garage doors facing the courtyard at Decca, next door, I’m happily looking forward to warmer weather in the new spot. With their huge, much brighter space, I know that our friends at Mahonia will be soon throwing the doors open to let in the Springtime Kentucky breeze, as well as customers both beloved and new.
Visit Bridget and her crew at the new space, 811 East Market, Nulu.
