More Rare Earth!...hehe...just like us to knock out a wall, our A St store grew!
Here's photos from the First Friday Art Walk June 1st 2012.
Check the website soon and see our Rare Earth online store - coming this spring 2013.
My husband started this business as an 18 year old entrepreneur. Rare Earth opened its first shop on the Ashland Plaza in 1969 selling records, handmade candles and imports. By 1972 the store relocated to a larger space a few doors down. With young friends rooted in the 60’s and a fun groovy community, Rare Earth quickly became an Ashland icon selling imports, jewelry, clothing and was known for its large music department. The story grew as Rare Earth opened stores in Grants Pass, Medford and Eugene. By 1987 those stores were retired and in the decade of 2000 Rare Earth Ashland enjoyed a move and new renovation to our historic Perrine’s Building where we eventually retired it at the end of 2010.
After retiring our large store on the Ashland Plaza, the idea of a small neighborhood shop was exciting. The return to our roots and the fun Rare Earth could offer had us building yet another Rare Earth story.
Our neighborhood shop in Ashland’s Historic Railroad District reflects that desire of fun with favorite specialty items, and music in the air. Rare Earth is a place that welcomes community and friends. It’s an amazing shop! And Yes! It still smells like Rare Earth!
