The Haymaker Shop Makes Itself at Home

The Haymaker Shop Makes Itself at Home
When Haymaker owner and curator Arrin Williams chose to open his shop and gallery in his own neighborhood of Andersonville, he says the decision was a “no brainer.”  Full of vintage home furnishing stores, Williams observed a “built-in market” in what he calls a “design district”.
