What happened to Foster Creativity?

If I had a nickel for every time I have been asked this lately, I think I could retire 😉  So here's the scoop...The name is changing, but everything else is staying the same with the exception of what I hope will be some "new and improved" enhancements for 2019.  I, Amber Foster, am still the sole owner of the store, I did not sell out to someone else or take on a partner, although if you want to buy it, give me a call 😂😂😂.  We are still a vendor boutique of 20+ small business that include boutique clothing for men, women and children, bath and body products, hand sewn and handmade items and home decor, farmhouse signs, jewelry, gourmet food, spirit wear and so much more!  We  will continue all of our parties and DIY workshops.  So why the name change?  When I first moved my business from home to a store front I contemplated changing the name to Durant Mercantile then, but I was afraid you guys wouldn't know to find me downtown if I made the name change then, so I stuck with "Foster Creativity."  Now that the store is fairly established downtown all of my loyal customers definitely know where to find us and shop us often, however those that have not been following me for some time aren't sure what the store is.  Some have asked me if we are a craft store or a art studio or I have even been asked if we are a daycare...None of those statements are completely untrue lol, but I wanted a name to better convey to people what we offer.  So I decided to rebrand and rename the store Durant Mercantile.  So, whether you have shopped us often or have yet to make it in, we hope to see you soon at Durant Mercantile.  You can find our location and hours HERE.   Thank you all so much for your love and continued support!  Amber 😘
