Finding a New Home at Pepper Place
As a company whose growth has paralleled that of the rebirth of Birmingham, we are thrilled Yellowhammer Creative has opened a new retail location in the Pepper Place Creative District. Like their neighbor at Pepper Place, FarmStand by Stone Hollow Farmstead, Yellowhammer has a long-standing relationship with the Market at Pepper Place. Now, they have a permanent bricks and mortar presence in The Studios Building fronting 2ndAvenue South. Through large glass windows, visitors and shoppers at Pepper Place will see a variety of products, including hand screen-printed posters and art prints, t-shirts, tote bags, postcards and other quality local souvenirs.
Yellowhammer Creative also works with local businesses to design and create goods. They recently started partnerships with Alabama Power, UAB and the University of Alabama. In addition to the products they design and produce in house, they also carry other local goods from the best makers and artists in town. With their largest shop yet, the creatives at Yellowhammer are planning to significantly expand their local maker offerings.
When asked why YHC chose Pepper Place for their new store location Allison Bowles, Yellowhammer retail manager, said, “Pepper Place is the first facility in Birmingham we know of that fought to produce a true mixed-use facility from urban renewal. The vision for Pepper Place aligns very much with ours and has evolved through the years. We’re excited to see a new need for more retail in the Central Business District and pleased to see Pepper Place supporting that vision as well!”
There’s even a good chance you might see Yellowhammer Creative at the Pepper Place Farmer’s Market on select weekends printing and selling their designs to Market patrons! We are all very excited for the future of YHC and the growing creative community at Pepper Place.
Join us as we officially welcome Yellowhammer Creative to the Pepper Place Family on November 15 during their grand opening parting, from 5-8pm. More details to come, but you definitely want to have this soiree on your calendar.
