Red Shoes on Hiatus
While Catherine Thursby heals, her merchandise moves around the corner
From the May, 2014 issue
"I'll be closed for at least six months," says Catherine Thursby, owner of Red Shoes, the gallery of arts and crafts on Ashley, many of them Thursby's own, along with vintage furniture and home goods. Thursby was diagnosed with breast cancer in February and closed the store "so I can get healthy," but she says firmly, "I'm not done! I'm still using the space as a studio and will be doing special events when I'm feeling up to it."
