The Birth of the Writer's Yard

Inspired by the desire to create a space where art could be celebrated and shared, we embarked on a journey to bring the Writer's Yard to life. Located within our store's Thick as Thieves garden space, the Writer's Yard is a testament to our commitment to fostering creativity in our community. With the support of our customers and friends, we launched a GoFundMe campaign to raise the funds needed to transform our vision into reality.

Why We Set Up the GoFundMe Campaign

The decision to launch a GoFundMe campaign was driven by our desire to involve the community in the creation of the Writer's Yard. We wanted to give our customers and supporters the opportunity to be a part of something meaningful—to contribute not only financially but also emotionally to a project that would benefit everyone in our community. We believed that by rallying together, we could create something truly special—a space where creativity could thrive and friendships could flourish.


The Progress of the GoFundMe Campaign

From the moment we launched our GoFundMe campaign, the response was overwhelming. Donations poured in from near and far, surpassing our initial goals within a matter of weeks. It was truly heart warming to see the outpouring of support from our community, and it served as a powerful reminder of the impact that collective action can have. Thanks to the generosity of our donors, we were able to make significant progress on the development of the Writer's Yard, bringing us one step closer to realizing our vision. We started by designing and building some mobile graffiti wall's for people to paint on.
