Allegory Gallery is MOVING

For the past two and half years, Allegory Gallery has called 139 East Main Street home.  We've met so many wonderful people in this space and created so many amazing memories.  It has been an honor and a pleasure to be able to offer our unique finds in this space.  Since we've started, we've had over a dozen art exhibitions, hosted teachers from all over the country, and had events featuring talented authors, artists, writers and musicians.  Thousands of people have crossed the threshold, from former Project Runway contestants to beauty queens.  In this space, we've laughed and cried.  We've transformed the stuff of dreams into reality.

Starting in May, we will shut the door on this chapter of our lives and move forward into our new incarnation.  The store will move a few blocks away to a new location.  We will continue promoting the arts and offering beads, art, and jewelry to the Ligonier community and abroad through our online presence.  We believe in our mission as a creative destination dedicated to inspiration, learning, and the joy of making.  We will continue to empower individuals to adorn their lives and find personal meaning in the things they fill their lives with.

The decision to leave our current location was not an easy one.  We grappled with the idea of starting over and part of us will always be a part of this space.  We've imbued it with our energy.  But the opportunity presented itself and we looked for the lessons in recent challenges.  We looked deep within and asked, "What's next?"  The Universe responded with this amazing opportunity to grow our business and further our goals.

Over the next few weeks, more details of the exact location will be revealed.  I will, of course, document the transition and share glimpses of the process along the way on my personal blog.  So far, we have scheduled our Grand Reopening for Saturday, May 10th.  Up until the move date, we will be offering special sales to help thin our inventory and make the move easier.  I will post more information as it becomes available.

We want to thank everyone who has welcomed us into the community and supported our vision and small business.  We wish to express our gratitude to all those people who have lent their time, energy and efforts to making this dream a reality.  Thank you so much and we hope to see you at the Grand Reopening to celebrate our next chapter.
