Since starting my small business in 2017, I have been hoping for a brick and mortar location. It has been my biggest goal and dream for my business - having a physical store where I can be everyday and contribute to my favorite city, Lakeland!
And we have finally found a building!
This spot is central to downtown Lakeland, right in the heart of the farmer’s market area within great foot-walking traffic on the corner of Bay St. and Kentucky.
The building will be open to move in on June 15th and I still cannot believe it! Another incredible business, Honeycomb Bread, will be moving in as well, utilizing the bar space in the back of the building for their delicious handmade bakery goods.
Our dream for the space:
Lakeland does not have a destination spot like Twenty Seven & Honeycomb will be. The shop will be full of paper goods - greeting cards, art prints, notebooks, wrapping paper, party supplies, etc. It will feature a variety of local makers’ work, some little home decor items, and vintage accessories. Honeycomb Bread will be making an amazing menu - for everyone to cuddle up with fresh-baked bread and a cup of tea.
We are thrilled to host live music nights, workshops, and outings that cultivate community in downtown Lakeland.
We believe Lakeland will be so richly benefitted from this retail space - and we cannot do it without your help!
I ask that you would consider contributing to this project to bring sunshine and hope to Lakeland. This is my dream, and I have worked so hard for so long to reach this point. I am so incredibly grateful to so many who have supported me since the start. I’m ready to give you a retail spot of dreams!
With the $12,000, we will be:
• painting the interior walls
• installing new lighting fixtures
• furnishing the shop with seating and shelves
• purchasing a large inventory of my designs, and wholesale items from other creators (local & beyond)
• filling the shop with it’s basic needs - cleaning supplies, a register, speakers, etc.
Thank you so much for your support in making this dream a reality!
Get ready for a lot of yellow!
