A fabulous development for downtown Hickory – the Union Square Emporium is being brought back to life! Thanks to a new owner over 60 small retailers will soon have their own micro-stores in this large facility. My husband and I are sharing a space under the collective name “Colorwhirl.” Stained glass and marbling together in one 8 x 10 spot. We (well, actually David) have been cleaning and painting, and tomorrow we’ll start to bring in racks and fixtures. Here some pictures of the transformation.
