I’m honestly not sure I can truly express to you how excited I am that: a) Young Blood is Back! b) Young Blood looks soooo damn good and c) Young Blood relocated like 2 blocks from my apartment.
Located right next door to the Highland Inn and Cafe di Sol and in the same strip of shops as Atlanta Pro Bicycle, Highland Row Antiques and the Atlanta Cupcake Factory, I can’t think of a better location for Young Blood.
The ladies of Young Blood, Maggie & Kelly, have devoted the last ten years to supporting up and coming artists, crafters and designers. Now they are really taking a leap to make Young Blood the best it can possibly be by taking on a larger space that’s in a higher trafficked area. They’ve added so much to Atlanta’s art community and to the careers of so many young artists. Let’s support them in their new endeavour by stopping by, telling our friends about the new location…and spending money!
That’s right, I said it. Independent shops can’t survive and thrive unless we all spend our money there. I don’t want to call out any names, but when you’re shopping in the neighborhood think twice before you make a purchase at the big corporate store down the street and instead support local girls who are working really hard to make it happen!
Saturday night is the grand re-opening of Young Blood complete with their first art opening in the new space. C’mon out and see the art of Jessica Gonacha and Valerie Taylor. The party is from 7-10 p.m. at 636 N. Highland Ave, Atlanta, 30306.
There are more photos of the new space here. And even if you can’t make it out to the party on Saturday, you should visit Young Blood very soon. They are open every day: Sunday – Thursday 12 to 8 p.m. and Friday – Saturday 12 to 9 p.m.
Atlanta should be sooooo excited!
