LINDSBORG — Chestnut Studios is moving and expanding again. The new shop location will be 118 S. Main St. in Lindsborg.

Store size will increase from 750 square feet in the old location at 110 N. Main St. to 1,500 square feet in the new store.

Shopkeepers Christina Becker and Carole Stuenkel will still be at the helm, and the store is also becoming the exclusive home of Brian and Vicki Freeman's new brand of artisan-crafted home furnishings and architectural salvage pieces called Born Again Building.

"In creating the name and the concept for our brand, Brian and I wanted to combine two of our greatest passions — that of our Christianity and our ability to artistically re-imagine historic architectural elements," says Vicki Freeman. "Like we've been born again in Christ, we will give historic architectural pieces a new life as well."

Chestnut Studios will continue selling art and handmade goods from budding and established artists alike, including but not limited to ceramics, paintings, prints, fiber arts, jewelry, and handmade wood products.

"One thing we're really excited about is the addition of visiting artists and featured artist receptions," says owner Christi Becker. "We didn't have room in our original space to host events, but we will in this new space. We'd love to hear from any artists interested in participating in these special events."

Artists will need to complete an application and review process to be included in the reception schedule.

Chestnut Studios will reopen for business at 118 S. Main St. in Lindsborg at 10 a.m. on Sept. 6.
