A new multi-vendor store is set to open at 139 Queen in Lennoxville on June 29, featuring a diverse range of products from 15 different vendors. Each vendor will have their own kiosk within the store, offering everything from crystals and antiques to jewelry and wreaths.

“There is no overall theme,” said Owner Hayley Ann Harrison to the Record on the scene June 12. “Every booth is different, and there’s a little bit of everything for everyone.”

Harrison, who has been participating in craft fairs for years, decided to bring her vision of a multi-vendor store to life.

“I always wanted to have a store,” she said. “After a family member passed away, I thought, ‘It’s now or never.’ This place came up, and it just felt meant to be.”

The new store has already generated interest within the crafting community.

“I put the word out to my crafter friends, who then told their friends,” she explained. “We’re only two booths short of being full.”

Each vendor has signed a one-year lease, ensuring a stable selection of products for the first year.

“After a year, both the vendors and I can decide if they stay or go,” she added.
