OWEGO, N.Y. - A craft store and gift shop in Owego has relocated to a retail storefront to bring its business closer to the people.
Creative Joy has moved to 173 Front Street in Owego.
The craft store and gift shop offers unique crafting supplies, bath and body products, and mixed media art.
It also offers craft classes and private group events for where people can create their own products like soap and home decor.
Co-Owner Michele Barnes says the new location is more visible for patrons.
"We felt the foot traffic was going to be better for us. We love our previous location that was in a house, and this is more of a storefront. So, it's a different opportunity for us," said Barnes.
This month's classes include a make-your-own mixed media frame and heartfelt card along with an open studio pick a project night.
It's open Tuesday and Wednesday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m, Thursday 10 a.m. to 7 p.m and Saturday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
