MiCHill Note: I have received a lot of emails about Strays. They do, indeed, have a pottery studio in the back (Feather Foot Studios) that has offered occasional pottery classes for kids. Currently classes have been on a little break (the owner was on maternity leave). But GOOD NEWS, this is coming back bigger and better than ever. I talked to Feather Foot Studios owner, Erin, and she is getting ready with a new website, a new room design, and more classes and scheduling options. It's all very exciting. Classes will resume February 21st for toddlers through 5th graders. Right now the best way to get information is to email or call Erin directly (firstname.lastname@example.org or 919-923-2466). We'll be sure to let you know when the website is launched. And, of course, we'll get you a review of Feather Foot Studios when it's time. In the meantime, here is some information from Katie about a spot in Southern Village that has parent-friendly shopping as well as gifts for kids and babies. (Psst-For more errand-friendly shops, check out this article here.):
Another great thing about Strays, and other stores in Southern Village, is the proximity to several great parks, including Southern Community Park, Newell Street Park, Hillspring Street Park, and Edgewater Street Park. You could even stop in at Town Hall Grill for lunch and make an afternoon of it!
The downside—H didn’t want to leave! I can’t wait to go back for the Second Friday Artwalk! For more information on Strays, check out our review on Discovering the Southern Part of Heaven.
