SustainAble Home Goods and Accessories, an Atlanta-based retailer offering fair and ethically made artisan goods, hand-picked decor, and accessories, will expand from its former Ponce City Market (PCM) retail kiosk to a new permanent space within the Old Fourth Ward mixed-use development.
The forthcoming shop will be housed on the second floor of PCM’s Central Food Hall between Citizen Supply and Modern Mystic Shop and is expected to debut in April 2020.
During construction, the brand is popping up at a larger temporary space across from Topstitch.
Since the debut of its first brick-and-mortar retail kiosk at PCM’s courtyard in 2019, SustainAble has offered a curated selection of socially and ethically crafted products from local and global makers.
At its upcoming shop, SustainAble will continue to feature these products alongside new additions like ethically sourced furniture.
Guests can expect a broadened lineup of home goods and accessories ranging from dishwares, plates and bowls, to wall hangings and decor, hand-made jewelry and more, all sourced from artisans in Mexico, Guatemala, Morocco, Ethiopia and countries across the globe.
SustainAble will also spotlight local makers, showcase original artwork from a different female artist in Atlanta each month and include an inspiration space.
For those looking to refresh their home, SustainAble will present a variety of ethical design services, such as developing custom pieces, styling spaces and offering design recommendations based on individual style, functional needs, and layout potential.
SustainAble was founded in 2017 by Atlantan LaToya Tucciarone.
Through her experiences traveling personally and time working for fair trade jewelry company Noonday Collection, Tucciarone learned it was possible to provide shoppers with handmade pieces that changed the world with every purchase.
“No one wants to knowingly buy something that exploits another person, but unfortunately, we live in a society where exploitation is often on the other side of the products we buy,” Tucciarone said in a press statement.
“I created SustainAble in order to give customers an opportunity to purchase beautifully made pieces that are bringing light and connection back into the world.”
