It’s getting pretty exciting on Allen Street lately, with the new streetscape, a number of new businesses popping up and on the way, and now we have a home store!
Roaring Spring Home has softly opened at 19 Allen Street right next door to Petal Pusher and across the street from the recently opened ‘26‘ (formerly Cathode Ray).
Store owner, Lydia Beebe Safulko, had been collecting vintage furniture and home decor for years and enjoyed it so much that she eventually decided to make a living out of it. Safulko initially established herself in a formal business setting at Hiraeth House (501 Delaware – a co-op of micro businesses). When 19 Allen Street recently became available, Lydia jumped on it.
“I love the vibes over here, it’s a fun part of the city,” she exclaimed.
And we are happy to have you!
Inside the shop, customers will find vintage pieces such as chairs, tables, lamps, artwork, and glassware, mixed in with some modern touches like the locally made vintage vessel candles. The space is nicely put together, welcoming and bright. Roaring Spring Home is an amazing addition to the growing retail scene in the neighborhood, and a great place for the residents (such as myself) looking for some unique goods to outfit our homes.
Seeing Safulko grow her business from an incubator location to a full-fledge business on Allen is an inspirational success story. Plus, having a home store on the street is exactly the sort of business we were hoping for.
There’s a lot of synergy and camaraderie in Allentown at the moment, and it’s only getting better with each new business that opens. It’s always important to have a solid mix of shopping and dining offerings too. Thankfully, this new blend of businesses means that more people will be frequenting the district this summer, and all year round for that matter. The more walkable the street, the better it is for everyone – business owners and residents.
Roaring Spring Home’s Grand Opening Day Celebration is Thursday, June 8, from 5-8pm. The event will feature numerous local artists displaying their works. Safulko will also take part in future First Friday Gallery Walks, with rotating artists from the area.
