New shops at Serenbe

Along with the spring flowers popping out of the ground, we have new businesses opening at Serenbe. Repurpose , a new venture for Keith Robinson of Gloriosa Design, is an amazing treasure of a store. Filled with beautiful antiques, paintings (some from Serenbe residents), fresh flowers for purchase and treasures Keith has found, Repurpose is a beautiful spot to visit at Serenbe.

Garnie, our oldest daughter, and I approached Keith some 7 weeks ago about the potential of the shop. We have known Keith for several years as he is the exclusive caterer for events at The Inn of Serenbe and love his style and design eye. A shop space was coming available and Keith had an inventory of beautiful furniture and objects from his years of styling events that his storage space was overflowing with. He loved the idea as we found out that one of his dreams for years had been to own a “lifestyle” store.

Well as is Keith’s way, he transformed a store space in 5 days! I love walking up to Repurpose to see what new piece Keith has recently found. He has an uncanny ability to  find items. I have known him to see a piece of furniture on the side of the road that has been discarded and  bring it back to life. Hence the name, Repurpose.

In this month’s Atlanta Homes and Lifestyles, there is a story featuring Keith and his exquisite style.

I hope you’ll come to Serenbe this weekend or soon to visit his shop and take home a treasure for yourself.
