Carnegie Library hosts Entrepeneur Storytime


From Special Reports

The Newnan Carnegie Library will  host its first Entrepreneur Storytime featuring Greenhouse Mercantile owner Kenya Brantley on Thursday, Feb. 6 at 7 p.m.

The event will have Kenya sharing her entrepreneurial journey to opening the local boutique Greenhouse Mercantile.

“This is a wonderful opportunity for future business owners and small business lovers alike to learn the backstory of one of Newnan’s talented entrepreneurs,” said Senior Carnegie Assistant Brittany Partington. “We hope it will give valuable insight to the inspiration, obstacles, and joys behind the opening and operating a successful business.”

Kenya Brantley’s general store-inspired Greenhouse Mercantile has a little bit of everything – candles, specialty food items, and amazing apothecary section, all-natural cleaning products, jewelry, and vintage clothing – and much of it carefully curated and sourced from creative local artisans. It’s also a communal space – intentionally, so.

The typical customer enjoys the uncommon things in life and strives to a life of slow living. They are environmentally conscious and enjoy the quality of a great product with hat tips to the fair trade environment. In addition to the local stock, Greenhouse Mercantile sells products that are made in developing countries in return for a fair wage.
