Mendon COOP owner Barb Amering, a resident of Mendon for 30 years, founded the Mendon COOP in November of 2015.
Trained in the fine arts and having worked with the Nan Miller Gallery for several years, her keen eye and sense of style brings a new colorful flare to our area. The shop offers a unique shopping experience while supporting the community. With so much talent in our area it was easy to create a marketplace that allows our artists an opportunity to display, sell and showcase their talents and wares year-round.
Currently exhibiting over 50 artists and new items arriving on a regular basis, you can always find something new, exciting, local and handmade.
Many of those same artists share their talents and the COOP offers several classes each week for folks to create, relax and enjoy their time spent with friends, new and old. With a complete kitchen, cooking classes are next on the agenda.
Hours are Tuesday-Friday from 2-6 p.m., Saturday 10 a.m.-5 p.m. and Sunday 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Find it on Facebook or at the website www.mendoncoop.com. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
