The Shop AKA Hargissville
The New Place AKA Hargissville.
We are all settled in the new shop and open for business. The new address is 4002 Hamilton Street, Omaha NE 68131. While there is much work to be done and it will be a work in progress for awhile we are excited about all the potential this new space has to offer. It will be much more than just a stringed instrument retail and repair shop. We are planning on having an arts and crafts room, a space for silversmith work, an ebay room and possibly some retail rental spaces for local artisans to display their creations.
One of the spaces we are most excited about is the old Winn/ Hamilton Street theater that will be restored and opened as the 40th Street Theatre. More information about this on this site. Our goal is to restore it to its original glory and we will use the space for all types of artisan expression. It will also be availble for fundraisers, local meetings and private rentals. It will be a welcome center for the community. We can't wait.
One of our goals that we are most proud of is 90% of renovations will be completed using recyled materials,obtained mostly from within the buildings themselves. Not everything we need can be found in the buildings so we are going to have to expand our search. We are accepting any donations of materials and/or services to complete the renovations of the 40th Street Theatre. If you yourself have something you would like to donate please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We would like to see this theater as a community hotspot of sorts and invite you to become involved if you are interested.
