Shop Brings Its ‘Unusual
Things’ to Carrboro
In the other half of the former Nested
space, Ginna Earl displays jewelry and
ceramics she has made, along with work by
other local artists and artisans. She moved
her shop,Vespertine, from her home town
of Pittsboro last year to be more convenient
to the Carrboro customers who appreciate
the thought and care that goes into something handmade.
In addition to her own pieces, Earl features silk-screened items, homemade goat’s
milk soap and decor items for the home.
“I’m trying to make a colorful and
inspiring space filled with unusual things,”
Vespertine, 118-B E. Main St., Carrboro,
Even with all the competition from gift
shops clustered in Carrboro, Aja Kelleher,
owner of Artizan Gifts, finds new and
unusual items to offer her customers. She
sells purses and accessories made from reused
fabrics by local artists. She discovered a line
of bamboo fabric that is not only organic
and environmentally friendly, but softer than
cotton and ideal for babies’ onesies and
hooded towels and mom’s yoga shirt and
socks. She fills in with organic soaps and
bath salts, soy candles, Papyrus cards and
Troll beads. Local artists hand-knit hats for
babies and scarves for everyone else. She
also sells art below the usual gallery prices.
Her merchandise is eclectic, dynamic
“The shop feels like a work in progress,”
