Vintage Hot Spot - Store Tour & Interview - Red Velvet Art Store in Springfield Missouri
Welcome to another Vintage Indie Hot Spot! We are so excited to be sharing with you a tour of the recently opened Red Velvet Art Store in Springfield Missouri. We've also had the pleasure of interviewing the lovely owner Elsie Flannigan (be sure to click on the photos for a closer look)
When did you open? February 1! It's been a wonderful and very busy month.
What types of art do you offer at Red Velvet Art Store?
We carry art from independent artist and handmade goods. We have
original art, prints, accessories, home decor and a little bit of
handpicked independent music! We have fresh items weekly and a new art
installment on the first of each month.
Yes. We have a party every first Friday. The stores on the street where
our store is also stay open. My favorite vintage store in all the world
is across the street. It's called "The Style". Parties are one of my
Is shopping indie and small businesses important to you? If so, why?
Of course! I haven't worked at a normal job in about 5 years, so
supporting artists is very important to me. I buy most of my gifts from
other artists and shop indie & vintage as much as possible. I feel
lucky to live in the Midwest where flea markets and thrift shops are
plentiful! My boyfriend is an independent musician. We are both directly
affected by people who choose to shop with independent artists and it's
something that has become a huge priority in our everyday lives!

Thank you Red Velvet Art for a wonderful tour and interview, we wish you the best of luck at your new store!
