Popular coffee shop supports local artisans

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – Starting last Saturday, Spencer’s Coffee downtown is hosting about a dozen local artisans.

After Gov. Andy Beshear closed down dining inside of restaurants recently, the owner of Spencer’s, Justin Shepherd decided he would use the empty space to help local artisans sell their products.

Multiple local creators have set up shop inside of Spencer’s so people can shop for the holidays and support someone locally.

There are many things for sale including ceramics, jewelry, art, clothing and other décor.

Shepherd says the shops will likely remain set up until the governor’s COVID-19 restrictions are lifted.
