Bull City Craft plans move, seeks community support

Bull City Craft, Durham

Bull City Craft, the popular arts and crafts store in Durham, is moving by the end of June and has launched an online fundraising campaign to support its move to a bigger home.

Jessica Greene, a mom who owns the store with her husband, tells me that the shop, which offers a variety of special events and activities, will be in search of a new home by the end of this month. The lease has expired and a different business will be moving into the current location, she wrote in a email.

The online fundraising campaign - through - will fund a move to a new location where Greene can expand the store's most popular programs, including Playcraft, a program for young children; drop-in crafts; birthday parties; summer camps; and Girl Scout badge workshops.

"We're looking at some really exciting possibilities for a new space," she tells me.

Greene, who also teaches art in the Chapel Hill Carrboro City Schools, is looking to raise $10,000. Donors, who offer anywhere between $10 to $1,000, earn incentives - from play dough to a week of summer camp or a party.

Bull City Craft opened in the Rockwood Shopping Center on University Drive in April 2011.

Greene said a new space would allow for more tables for painting and crafts; outdoor crafting space; larger capacity for parties; a separate space for drop-in crafts during private parties; and extended Playcraft hours.
