In case you missed it, the real estate market right now is on fire! Homes for sale are receiving 4 offers on average, but we’ve had clients in bidding wars with up to 37 offers on the table, some that are $50-$60K OVER the asking price! Why is this important? Well, friends, if you’ve been thinking of selling your home, NOW IS THE TIME. Even if it’s just a consideration and you aren’t sure if you want to sell, we’re happy to offer up a free Home Value Analysis (hint: the Zestimate price isn’t always right) so you can see all of your options.

The Victorian plant shop & Bellwood Coffee shop coming soon
Local shops Bellwood Coffee and Victorian Atlanta are teaming up and opening a storefront together in East Atlanta Village in May. The 2,370 square-foot store will be located at 1336 Glenwood Avenue SE and will feature plants, ceramic pieces made by local artists, soil blends, plant accessories from the Victorian, and coffee drinks, pastries, and breakfast sandwiches from the Bellwood Coffee counter. The Victorian will use most of the Glenwood Avenue space and will also feature a cactus room with floor-to-ceiling windows.
According to a press release, the space “will incorporate historic and contemporary features throughout using beautiful clay tiles, eccentric wallpaper, colorful floors and touches of saturated colors”. The shop will have a front porch seating area and eight barstools at the coffee bar.
The Victorian first opened a location inside Citizen Supply at Ponce City Market and recently relocated to a stand-alone store on the ground floor. Bellwood Coffee got its start in late 2018 as a coffee cart parked inside a restaurant. The café and roastery are currently located at 2011 Bolton Rd NW in Atlanta. With the grand opening of the store located at 1336 Glenwood Avenue, the Victorian will be open 9am – 7pm Monday – Friday and 10am – 7pm Saturday – Sunday. Bellwood Coffee will be open from 7am – 7pm Monday – Friday and 8am – 7pm Saturday through Sunday. Curbside pickup and instore shopping will be available. Masks will be required while inside the shop.
Southern Feed Store food hall opening this summer
The food hall, Southern Feed Store, will reside in the former Graveyard Tavern space on Glenwood Avenue. It’s named after the feed store that once occupied the building between 1927 to the 1940s selling seed, grasses and feed for livestock. Pellerin Real Estate purchased the century-old building last February and has plans to turn the space into a 6,000 square-foot mini food hall with six stalls and the capacity to seat up to 150 people.
Brazilian coffee shop and cocktail bar, Buteco, will be the anchor restaurant in Southern Feed Store. They plan to serve coffee during the day, stiff cocktails at night, and offer live music for all to enjoy. One stall at Southern Feed Store allows for an outdoor smokehouse and will likely serve barbeque. The other food stalls have not been officially announced yet. The food hall managers say that they have already received more than 150 inquiries from people interested in opening a stall at Southern Feed Store. Rafael Pereira, owner of Buteco and one of the managers of the food hall, said they are “seeking the best local chefs and unique food staples in the city to fill what we hope will become a neighborhood institution known for great food, stiff drinks, music, and a welcoming environment”. The stall agreements will range from one to five years in hopes to work with chefs that keep their menus fresh and exciting to encourage people coming back.
The six-stall food hall is set to open this summer. Sources indicate the Basement bar should remain intact beneath Southern Feed Store and will eventually reopen once the pandemic subsides.
Until next month, thanks for reading!
