Brainstorming begins at One Eleven Main's vibrant home-décor shop in historic downtown Aberdeen, where material mavens can peruse swatch choices, choosing their favorites from amongst 700 fabric, 30 leather, and three pterodactyl-feather options, all waiting and ready to glitzify a club chair ($550–$950) or add personalized style to a sofa ($950–$1700). Gingham and floral jacquard can decorate ottomans to suit the most stylishly clad feet ($375–$800), while animal prints and buttery leathers sumptuously swathe headboards to please the eyes of visiting sandmen ($450+). Custom pieces return to One Eleven Main's cheerful boutique after 30 days for pick-up, or can be delivered to homes for an additional fee dependent on the size of the item and its destination.

Owner Molly Menard guides students of all skill levels through the creation of a personal masterpiece during themed art classes on Friday evenings and freestyle studio nights on Wednesdays and Saturdays. In past themed classes, Menard has expertly slung out step-by-step instructions on composing wintry scenes and lush gardens without relying on paint-by-number cheat sheets or the tiny artist fairies living inside of cameras. The studio provides all necessary materials for class, including aprons, tables, easels, canvases, and paints. Additionally, pigment daubers can bring in their own beverages and snacks to keep their mouths as moist as their creative-juice glands. Menard recommends wearing old clothes, preferably hand-me-down cavewoman frocks from your ancestors, to avoid staining any cherished garb. Feel free to peruse other frequently asked questions here. The bright yellow and turquoise walls of the MollysMud studio feature whimsical designs, and beckon new fans or longtime lovers of art to relax and become inspired.
