Cherry Tree Creative

A Collaborative Creative Effort

CONTRIBUTED BY MICHELE CULP OF THE OLIVE BASKET

My husband & I stumbled upon this amazing little boutique one day as we were exploring the small town of Taylor, TX, and it has to be one of my favorite shops I have found so far in the Austin area.  Located in the heart of downtown Taylor at the corner of 4th and Main in the historic Preslar-Hewitt Building, this inspiring little shop captured our eyes and our hearts, and I know it will capture yours too.

Curie Humphreys, the innovative owner behind this shop, decided to open Cherry Tree Creative as a place for local artisans to sell their products. She invites any and all local craftspeople, artists, designers, and creative business folks to bring their handmade goods, vintage and one-of-kind finds to Cherry Tree for her to showcase and sell.

In turn, Curie puts her creative talents to work as she mixes all (yes ALL!) of these varied and local goods into displays that come together cohesively and beautifully and that always tell an inspiring visual story.  She is masterful at her art of display and is pleased as punch to be able to “give back” to local artisans in a way that puts their unique, one-of-a kind products into your hands.

And, the magic and beauty of it all is that as the shopper, you would never know that every single item in this shop is not purchased by Curie at a national market, but instead is lovingly made or sourced by someone who lives right in the local community, or as Curie likes to call it – her own “backyard”.  I have yet to see another boutique concept quite like this and it inspires me as a former shop owner to think of new ways to support local artisans.  Just think – if every town had a Cherry Tree Creative, how much local love and support would be flowing into and out of our communities?!

Until then, this is definitely one shop you can not pass up if you are ever visiting or if you live in the Austin area.  And, if you never get a chance to visit in person, then at least follow what is going on at Cherry Tree Creative on Facebook.  You will see all of the new goods that are brought in every week, and I guarantee you that you will be inspired by the local love and the unique creativity of local artisans!

If you do get a chance to visit Cherry Tree Creative for yourself, then you will definitely get to meet Curie and probably Stacey (her equally creative assistant) too.  You will be invited in, welcomed, and urged to stay, if not for all the wonderful goodies you find, but for the fact that you just met 2 new friends!
