Lea’s commitment was to transforming her retail space and making room for the other creators in a modest 1,000 square feet. A host of cosmetic upgrades and tens of thousands in new investment leave the marketplace looking quite different than its former office use. Displays crafted or up-cycled by Rachael Summerfield, owner of Paper Kite Creations and Lea’s sister, create a unique and homey experience.
It’s important to Lea and the other founding entrepreneurs that you find something new each time you visit. Shoppers can expect to find the goods or foods they showcase ever changing. The first quarter of 2021 will bring an announcement of newly featured vendors at the Marketplace. Lea’s excited to grow their offerings of men’s items. Apparel items currently stocked pay tribute to the female tribe of founders, but patrons of all kinds are enjoying cocktail mixers and the increasingly popular made-to-order charcuterie and brunch boards.
The River + Road Marketplace has opened to the public just last month, and Lea’s been grateful for the overwhelming support of patrons in Huron and north central Ohio already. With just a few more days to shop this holiday season, now’s the perfect time for your first look at 404 Main Street, Huron.
