community conversation. In 2017, Scuppernong Books was instrumental in the formation of the Greensboro Literary Organization, a separate non-profit organization which stages the annual Greensboro Bound Literary Festival, and brings authors into the Guilford County Schools through their Authors Engaging Students program. In 2018, we formed Scuppernong Editions, an eclectic small press. Scuppernong Books believes that independent bookstores have an important role to fill in a community. We hope to live up to that responsibility with an openness to ideas, a respect for all the individuals that make up our Greensboro community, and a willingness to have fun doing so.

REA’s clean-lined, midcentury vibe has been waiting for you since owner Mark Hewett opened it in 2000. A native of Birmingham, England, Hewett studied industrial design and worked in London, Hong Kong and New York before he came to Greensboro 20 years ago, specializing in reproductions of midcentury furniture designs. Hewett has a long relationship with High Point–based Younger Furniture. Customers can select from a wide range of designs and upholstery for the couches, chairs and headboards displayed in AREA, which are then custom-made and delivered to their homes, usually within six to eight weeks. Most of the case goods — nonupholstered chairs, side and coffee tables, et cetera — are sourced from a Minneapolis-based company, which in turn sources from a manufacturer in Pennsylvania. So customers can feel good about supporting locally supplied and American-made products with the

evolution Cycles was born almost 15 years ag out of frustration. We didn’t feel at home in any of the local bike shops. They were all great in their own way. But they weren’t what we were looking for, so we started something new. Add in some cool brands, great service, curated inventory, a hefty amount of suburban ennui and a little cheek... and voila.! Here we are.

Hewett wants to ensure that the furniture a customer has waited weeks to receive is in perfect condition, is exactly what was ordered, and is assembled and placed precisely as directed. On the one hand, it’s a smart business move to make sure this crucial last step in the process goes smoothly, especially since Hewett does not collect final balance until customer sign-off on delivery. But mainly Hewett just wants the job done right. “People are happy when you bring in the couch or dining room set they’ve been waiting on,” Hewett says. “I want them to stay happy for years to come.”

attendant lower carbon footprint. “AREA is lifestyle furniture,” Hewett says. “We are bringing together appealing design, high quality construction and moderate pricing.”

Boutique without being bougie, with everything from used to new. Gear for everything from daily commuting to bugging out of town for a month. We work on all bikes and accept everyone. Why choose Revolution Cycles? It’s a great question, and probably best answered by a super sexy interpretive dance about class war, consumerism, devolution, and the fleeting triumph of love. But the short answer is “bikes.” Also, we’re not a cult. Located across from Spring Garden Bakery. Open Tues-Sat. Closed Sundays and Mondays.
