Announcing O&P’s Newest Venture: Maiden South

As you may have already gathered from social media, I have an exciting announcement to finally officially make: my friend Jessica Grace and I are opening a shop together in downtown Bainbridge!

Maiden South: Quality Crafted Goods in Downtown Bainbridge, Georgia

It’s called Maiden South (say it out loud… get it?) and as the tag line states, we will feature quality crafted goods, along with some of our favorite vintage items.  We just launched our brand-spanking new website this week, and I am so excited I could burst.  I suppose I have it in my blood.  My grandfather started his own little shop in Bristol, Florida after he got back from World War II.

Conveniently, his last name was also Bristol.  And although we won’t be selling the same things he did, it will still be a shop full of novelties of sorts.

We had a little picnic to celebrate our venture together, and my sister Anna Jo took some really great pictures.  I thought I would share a few of them with you today, then continue to shamelessly plug ask you to head on over to our new Maiden South website and check out the rest.
