Brush Factory on Kings to host open house Nov. 2

October 31, 2017

Seven new businesses have joined The Brush Factory on Kings, bringing the total to 45 merchants and artists in its 830 Kings Highway location in Lewes. An open house will be held from 5 to 7 p.m., Thursday, Nov. 2, offering friends, neighbors and the public an opportunity to meet the new merchants and shop the dozens of local small businesses that are The Brush Factory. Food will be provided by Big Oyster Brewery. 

New arrivals include:     

Brain White Nautical Photography – Unique photographic presentations that capture the rustic strength and natural elegance of nautical subjects, including the yachts, regattas, history, seascapes and sea life of coastal Delaware and the Mid-Atlantic region.  

Indigo Bleu – A women’s clothing and accessories boutique opening its second location and first in Delaware. Indigo Bleu carries designer lines that hold both a bohemian and contemporary feel. The handpicked merchandise is free-spirited, casual and whimsical. Indigo Blue is the fifth clothing store to join the Brush Factory.

Lamp Artz – Artist Jim Hess transforms lighting into art and creates unique lamps using a variety of materials. Great pieces are available for the home, restaurants, "Man Caves" and more. 

Washed Ashore – Beautifully framed seaweed-pressed prints and other ocean finds all done by a talented young Lewes artist. Seaweed is from local beaches and shorelines, and each piece is dated as to location and date found.   

Old Rehoboth Recycled – Featuring an assortment of salvaged materials from vintage Rehoboth structures. Materials include doors, windows, beams, flooring, staircase components, plumbing fixtures and more. A unique opportunity to bring new life to great pieces of our area’s past.  

American Brocante (formerly House and Home) – Features a mix of recycled and up-cycled items as well as unique vintage and antique finds. Owner Rebecca Berger’s style is strongly influenced by years spent traveling and living overseas in Europe. 

Remember When – A six-year family business that started with painted furniture and later expanded to reclaimed materials. True to their tag line “Repurposed, Reclaimed, Renewed.” Remember When focuses on solid wood vintage pieces that start with “rusty, crusty, tattered or dusty” and evolve into unique creations that keep people wondering “how did they ever think of that”. 

Owner Christine Chura is also happy to announce Brush Factory vendor Redone is now an official distributor for Fusion Mineral Paint. Fusion furniture paint comes in more than 50 colors to suite every style, mood and project. Their best-in-class paint features include an environmentally conscious formulation, zero VOCs, no brush strokes, superior durability, easy one-step application and significantly improved strength. Redone will host paint demonstrations and classes throughout the fall.
