Downtown Business Feature: Ingredients, for the gourmet in you

 

Downtown Clarksville Association

Clarksville, TN – As a manager of a downtown business, I get asked all the time about my shop, and other downtown shops and why we choose to be part of a downtown community.  Why did we decide to be here versus a strip mall, independent building or in the mall.  Well, I know what the owner of ARTifacts, Paige King,  would say.  But I can’t say for sure what the reasoning for the other business owners in downtown would say.

So I decided it was time to ask!  I thought it would be a good idea to ask all the members of the Downtown Clarksville Association (DCA) all the questions we get asked daily and share them with you here.  Starting with Ingredients – and continuing with all the businesses who decide to participate in this segment of feature articles.  I hope this gives you insight of the downtown shops, restaurants and businesses. I know it has helped me! «Read the rest of this article»

Clarksville has three mayors, and carols continue

Paige King, the owner of Hodgepodge

I’m proud to know the “Mayor of Franklin Street,” and I call her my dear friend as well. She’s been mayor longer than John E. Piper, or even before we entered the Guinness Book of World Records by having two women as mayors. Au contraire, we have three: McMillan, Bowers and King.

Paige King has changed my life, my attitude and my mind. She lets me see the cup as half full. I was not so slowly turning into a drudge and could only think of all we lacked. Paige has helped me see the treasure we have and how we can move it forward and make it bigger and better. If one is allowed more than one best friend, Paige King is mine.

Her shop, Hodgepodge, puts me in mind of all the unique shops I haunt when I’m outside of Clarksville. Now I can joyfully haunt one here. She said that having a theatre helped seal her decision to settle in Clarksville, which is nice to say and even more to mean. «Read the rest of this article»
