After spending two years in a small space on Rutherford Road, Shindig Furnishings is coming home to the Village of West Greenville.
Owner Jackie Blackwell says moving to the space at 11 Lois Ave. (formally occupied by Knack) is a homecoming. “It’s interesting when life brings you full circle,” said Blackwell. “We’ve acquired the most beautiful building in The Village of West Greenville, bringing us back to the area of town where we first started selling midcentury under a 10-by-10 tent in a grassy lot two years ago.”
Shindig, which specializes in midcentury modern furniture, barware and accessories, will be tripling its space with the move and will also house vintage clothing store Kate DiNatale Vintage.
Blackwell, who owns Shindig along with her mom and dad, Jeff and Joan Soladay, says they chose the former Knack space for its “move-in-ready condition and ability to accommodate moving large pieces of furniture in and out.” A large sliding door in the back can be opened on nice days, and the building has exposed brick and original tin ceilings.
“It’s a gorgeous space, and since we sell primarily through social media outlets, a clean, beautiful, bright space makes photographing pieces that much easier,” said Blackwell.
They also hope to bring more awareness to The Village of West Greenville. “With so many chains coming to Greenville, especially downtown, The Village seems to be a safe zone of sorts for smaller and local business owners, as it’s simply more affordable,” she said, adding that the area reminds her of Athens, Ga., where she went to college.
Blackwell says she plans to be open in the new Village location by July 5. Hours will also be expanded with new set hours of Tuesday through Saturday noon to 6 p.m. (Saturday may be 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.)
