Creating a Place for the Community
Reynolds, Makery & Pulperia is the newest place to find Atlanta's most talented makers, designers, and artists. Situated in the historic Reynoldstown neighborhood in East Atlanta, our name is a both a nod to the history of the area and a marriage of 2 business ideas. Maddison and Sarah Reynolds were freed slaves who settled the area after the Civil War. We hope to honor their courage and entrepreneurial spirit.
When founders, Courtney, Liz, and Jerry, joined forces to launch Reynolds, they each brought a vision of possibilities! Courtney saw a Makery, a neighborhood giftshop where you could find all your favorite handmade goods. Liz & Jerry envisioned a place for the neighborhood to gather & chat, a place to take a break from the day, a place to grab a small refreshment and recharge. In Nicaragua (where Liz & Jerry run a social enterprise and work with artisans) there are many spots like this. In fact, many people in Nicaragua run small neighborhood stores out of their homes, and these are called "pulperias". These two visions were combined to create Reynolds Makery & Pulperia.
We believe our combined passions are creating a unique shopping experience. You can feel good about shopping Reynolds. Our brands are local, women-owned, minority-owned, handmade, many have giveback components or are certified Fair Trade.
