Handmade goods. . Local Artisans. . Cultivating Creative Living.
At Art Farm, they believe in “Cultivating Creative Living”, by promoting local artists and artisans and helping you find one-of-a-kind art works for many tastes and budgets.
You can find jewelry, funky lamps, woodwork, home goods, wearables, cool stuff to sit on your shelves or hang on a wall, and of course original paintings and prints. All from local artists!
They have featured artist events and First Friday gallery openings, fun classes for kids and adults, and many other ideas that are taking seed. (They promise not to go to far with the farm puns – but hay, what can you do?)
They are also home to an amazing “ghost wall” – that is the Durham Tobacco mural that they uncovered by accident/luck during the renovation of our space. It pre-dates the building, which was built in 1885, and it was plastered over, so no one had seen this mural that was hidden right downtown for over 132 years!
Located in the heart of Downtown Decatur on the north side of Central Park, Art Farm is within walking distance of some great restaurants, shops, and the arts district.
Board Knight is Decatur’s Friendly Local Game Shop open to all ages! They offer a wide variety of products including board games, collectible card games and any supplies you may need!
In addition to games, events are also held for Magic the Gathering, Yu-Gi-Oh! and Pokemon. They also have a wide array of demo games for customers to try before they purchase.
If you’re not familiar with role play gaming? There are surprising benefits you may not realize. If you bemoan your kids playing video games, consider games the whole family can enjoy! Strip away the facade of monsters and swords, role-playing games revealed themselves to be something far more interesting than other traditional games. Behind the fantasy adventures is a fun social gathering that requires you to think on your toes, solve problems, be creative, and ultimately learn how to become a team player. Sound familiar? Yeah, that’s because it’s like every job out there. It really isn’t about swords, trolls and dragons at all—it’s about thinking critically and working like a team. It’s fun and more importantly, it’s for everybody!
Opened in 2013, Board Knight brought gamers together and created a place for all to feel welcomed. As the number of gamers, grew so did their need for space. In 2014, Board Knight relocated to its current location at 228 W. Main Street across from the Salvation Army.
They are conveniently located in downtown at 228 W Main Street with hours in the evenings and weekends. For a complete schedule of sales and events, check out their Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/BoardKnight
