Alright friends, Are we ready for our FIRST Small Business Saturday?!

This week we are exploring the Creston neighborhood and there’s one amazing business we thought deserved a little extra highlight: Lions and Rabbits.

Lions and Rabbits opened in 2016 as a gallery in the Creston neighborhood featuring local and well-loved artists along the walls and throughout the building. Even the wallpaper in the back room was designed by an artist in the area!

In September 2017, owner Hannah Berry expanded the services of Lions and Rabbits as an event space. It is available as a wedding venue, for private events, or even art lessons. The possibilities with this space are endless and it has us in complete awe. It is both versatile and stunning (seriously, you guys).

When we visited today, Lions and Rabbits was hosting a Bridal Show supporting other small business owners in the area (YAY!). There were options for food, salons, photography, hand lettering, and even lingerie.

The room was filled with talented individuals including owner, Hannah, who is a dynamic local force with a vision for this city and to lift up other GR-based artists.

It's hard to think back to the point when this building sat untouched for years, but now it is a HUB for creativity.  The walls and parking lot feature art in a variety of style and mediums and are sure to impress any visitor. Be sure to check it out for yourself!

This Small Business Saturday was an easy choice. Keep rocking it, Lions and Rabbits! We will be cheering you along the way!
