Vitae Viride, is officially open for business as of today in Fort Thomas.
Shop owner, Emily Little, told Fort Thomas Matters in March that she was excited to open a shop and build into her community.
Vitae Viride, which translates in Latin to "life" and "green," will manufacture and sell all-natural personal care products and cosmetics like soaps, lotions, facial masks and deodorant. Little is the owner of Queen City Alchemy and has been running that business from her home for the last eight years.
She'll also host community classes in the location.
Her daughter, Olivia, a kindergartner at Woodfill Elementary helped her cut the ribbon this morning.
"It's pretty indescribable to have Olivia here. I think it's really important for her to see her mom as a business owner and see the work that it takes to try and be successful. I just want her to see what that looks like as much as possible and integrate that into her life," she said.
"I can't wait to have the community in this space."
The first few classes are later this month. The first, Saturday, April 22 will be a painting class. The following Saturday, April 29, there will be a calligraphy class taught.
To sign up, go to the Vitae Viride Facebook page on the events page, Eventbrite.com or you can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
