The year 2020 was a tough time to open a small business, especially in Jefferson City.However, Jeanne Musick and Mary Alaniz took the plunge in November, opening ReVisions on Main in the former Book Nook location across from the old Jefferson City Post Office. The building underwent several months of renovations before opening.Business is going quite well, thank you.“We have been well received by the community,” Musick said.“Jefferson City’s amazing,” Alaniz said.“They really are,” Musick added.The ladies bring ReVisions of antique, vintage and new home decor, gifts and jewelry items not normally found anywhere else. ReVisions on Main strives to create a unique shopping experience and invite people to shop local.When Revisions on Main opened, it was at the height of COVID-19.“We opened before the cases peaked during the holidays,” Alaniz said.“We wore masks and our customers wore masks,” Musick said.The ladies had a booth in one of the variety malls in downtown Morristown.“My husband called me up and said that he thought he had found a building for a shop,” Musick said. “I came here, prayed about it because something came on my heart about God calling me into it.”“And here we are,” Alaniz said.There was a fair number of books from the Book Nook that had to be disposed of before Revisions on Main could open.“We were in here for a couple of months renovating. There were thousands of books that had to be cleared out,” Musick said.In addition to the renovations inside, the outside of the shop was renovated.“We did the whole front of the building with new lighting and everything,” Alaniz said. “We had to go through the city to get permission to renovate the building.”The store’s opening has been warmly received by the downtown community.“People say when they come in here that they needed something like this and they’re happy we’re here,” Musick said.The COVID-19 pandemic made many realize that they need the local businesses.“This Mossy Creek Area is very close and supportive, especially the times we’re going through now,” Musick said.The Gather space across the street from the store opened recently with craft classes for adults. A bigger Gather space in the basement of the store will open in the next few months. That space is four times larger than the current Gather space is.“The Gather is an umbrella under Revisions on Main,” Musick said. “It’s something that we were planning on having here anyway, but there wasn’t enough room and downstairs isn’t ready yet. So, we’re across the street temporarily until we can be downstairs.”There were five people registered for The Gather’s first class.“They’re excited and we had another person sign on,” Musick said.Musick called the classes offered as “Pinterest in person.”“Anything and everything you can find on Pinterest, we’re probably going to be doing,” Musick said. “We’re going to be doing ‘Jewelry 101,’ ‘Mineral Paint 101,’ a lot of different crafts that people get to make and take home.”Musick and Alaniz said that The Gather will also have painting, calligraphy classes, how to make quilt piece barn signs and much more.“We’re hoping to have The Gather be something people will come to gather and create,” Musick said. “We’ll even have flower arranging and all kinds of stuff. We’re hoping to empower people to pick up their tools, their paint brushes and to just get creative, as well as socializing with them.”The Gather will also have classes going on through the summer for adults.“Other businesses that do this type of thing don’t do it in the summer so they can spend time with the kids,” Alaniz said. “Adults are going to get more involved with us.”“We’ve received nothing but excitement for the classes,” Musick said.The ladies are also starting an EBay store.ReVisions on Main is located at 102 East Old Andrew Johnson Highway, Suite B, in the Mossy Creek section of Downtown Jefferson City.
