my first post, you'll understand why I named my blog "Why I Consume Art." And if you understand that, you'll get why I'm writing about Belly General Store.
As Belly's tagline - Simple Decadence - suggests, the store is a fun study in contrasts.
Belly is both old and new. The marble counter, rustic benches, and even the logo, at once early 20th century and retro, pay homage to the original, 1914 soda fountain pharmacy that inhabited the little corner space. Yet, Belly bursts with fresh, cheerful colors that change with the seasons and pop against those time-faded antiques. The aesthetics feel old-fashioned, yet current.
couples who met there and married, for life. Belly respects the tradition of community and quality, but does so in a forward-thinking manner, providing the most thoughtful experience in sight, smell, touch, sound, and taste it can. So, Belly General Store is art. Go enjoy it!
