Trends: Enjoying Senoia, Nick Huey, and The ReStore
By Corby Carlin Winters, Public Relations & Marketing
Each month, this Trends & Trendsetters column covers some of the hot trends from health and wellness, fashion and style, business or even tapping into your creative side. There are so many new trends happening in 2021 in social media, politics, business and fashion.
If you haven’t been to Senoia lately it is time to go. It’s a lively part of Coweta and some great food and shopping to be had. There’s also a new “joint” we are featuring elsewhere in this edition of The Paper, so make sure to check out Lisa’s Creperie.
We always love sticking our head into The Good Junk Company, to see what new decor BeBe has found. And there is always the Classic Market, where you can get speciality wines and all things Georgia-made.
New to Senoia is Sauce Daddy’s, owned by Ryan Lindstedt and Chris Stevers. The two met in Hilton Head where Chris was playing music at bars. When the virus hit and shut everything down, they put their heads together and came up with Sauce Daddy’s.
It is filled top to bottom with more than 700 custom made sauces. hot sauces, jelly, jams, barbeque sauces, rubs/seasonings and special blends of olive oil and balsamics. Ninety percent of what they sell cannot be found in your local grocery store. Whether you are a seasoned chef or a novice, their products are bound to improve any food. Find out more at Saucedaddys.com and on Facebook.
Artists come in all shapes, styles and vibes
Nick is a unique creative artist. He rescues castaway stuff and reuses it. Each of his creations is one of a kind, hand sewn, recycled works of wearable art. Whenever his friends see his latest creation, they always yell out, “it’s a Huey.” He takes what has been thrown away and discarded and breathes new life into them. Just how God can repurpose our lives into beautiful things.
You can find Nick on Facebook and Instagram @itsahuey. He’s also featured at Tribal Chick in Fayetteville. Email him at [email protected].
Being stuck at home
Many are just plain tired of being home and looking at their furniture and home decor. That’s especially true for those forced to work from home and have to Zoom all day. Our columnist Nan Johnston, who writes The Staging Life for The Shopper, has some helpful hints to deal with this dilemma.
Remember that when you are on a Zoom call, what people see behind you tells them a lot about you. Less is more. You want to be the focus of the video, not your background.
Nan and I agree that even just moving something you love to another location in your house may help you get a new lease on your decor. And if you’ve just had enough and are ready for a major change, consider donating you items to places like Restore with Habitat for Humanity to help others.
