Holder Goods 5

Quality, not quantity

Raleigh natives Sam and Meredith Kirkpatrick are bringing new life to downtown’s South Street with Holder Goods & Crafts, a new space for art, home goods, furniture, and antiques. Together with creative director Bryan Costello, they’ve created a store filled with treasures an anthropologist would covet: antique cameras, rich textiles and linens, and local furniture made by Raleigh group Arrowhead. All tell a story. Local photographer Miller Taylor, who also contributes to Seen in Raleigh (p.130) this month, has otherworldly photos of rugged Outer Banks beaches on the walls; vintage rugs cover the floor. It’s all part of Holder Good’s old-school aesthetic: quality over quantity and good-looking things that will stand the test of time.

10 a.m. – 6 p.m., Thursday – Sunday; 612 W. South St.; holdergoodsandcrafts.com
