Member Highlight
Mill on Main
From their website:
"Mill on Main is located in downtown Oberlin at the corner of Main and Vine Streets, where a 19th-century mill once stood. The distinct space combines historic finds with mid-century touches – providing the perfect setting for organizations, entrepreneurs, and creatives to host:
The location features 2,500+ square feet of thoughtfully designed space that mixes historic finds with mid-century and contemporary touches. The result: A comfortable and welcoming place for organizations, entrepreneurs, and creative professionals to host business retreats, weekend workshops, strategy sessions, focus groups, pop-up shops, creative events, and more.
The interior was conceived with versatility in mind and features distinct meeting areas, a conference room, and a catering kitchen."

Woodshed Lessons, Studio, & Store

Jessica Pliner of South Amherst and her family had a great time at 2nd Saturday in Oberlin! She said the Bingo game made her go into stores she'd never been in before - and she shopped! OBP works to get folks into Oberlin stores!
