A Vinton store that rents space to vendors selling repurposed items, antiques and primitive décor will close Saturday.
Patty Kiser’s E. Washington Avenue store, Two Ps in a Pod, is closing after years of slow sales, she said.
“It’s the economy,” Kiser said. “It’s been very hard. Customers come in and look and love the store but they don’t have any money to buy anything.”
The 20 vendors who rent space have either closed permanently or are looking for space elsewhere, Kiser said.
She is planning to continue to sell items on Etsy, an online site for hand-crafted goods, or she said she might look into renting a space with another store.
Two Ps in a Pod had been in business for about seven years.
