Downtown Spruce Pine, NC tour for artists and entrepreneurs


Here are the details from Stacey Lane:

Attention Artists and Entrepreneurs

This is an invitation to a tour of available properties (for rent and sale) in downtown Spruce Pine. The tour will take place on Friday, February 17th, and will begin at the Main Street Pocket Park meeting room at 2pm. The tour should conclude by 4:30, and will be followed by a casual gathering at Spoon for those interested in continuing discussions about the possibilities.

Libby Phillips, Director of Spruce Pine Main Street, will lead the tour and will have information about rental costs and sale prices, as well as information provided by the owners. In some cases, the owners will be present to answer questions. Buildings included in the tour are for commercial use, and in some cases also have potential living spaces. Following is a list of properties currently on the tour. If you are interested in a property and don’t see it on this list, please contact Libby at 828-765-3008 to inquire about its inclusion.

McCall’s, Bank of America, Wellborns, Old Town Hall, Old Spruce Pine Grocery/Leoni property, Twisted Laurel, Not Bob’s Antiques, Crystal Building, Toe River Garage (property view from street only), Market on Oak (upstairs), Foxfire Restaurant, Barber Shop

We are hoping that this will make it easy for folks looking for spaces to get a good idea of what is available, and also to connect folks who might be looking for similar types of studios/spaces. After the tour, we can discuss further ways to support artists and entrepreneurs in finding and creating great workspaces in downtown Spruce Pine.

Please help us spread the word by sharing this e-mail with anyone you feel might be interested. An RSVP to staceylane@penland.org will be helpful as we plan the tour, but is not required in order to attend. All are welcome!
