Rala: Regional and Local Artisans

Hey y’all, it’s time for #FeatureFriday
Today we’re gonna tell you about one of our favorite print makers. “It’s always nice at Camp Nevernice” Laura Baisden of @campnevernice got her start by designing and printing posters with Bruce McCloud @isleofprinting then at @hatchshowprint in Nashville. In 2015 she relocated and with the help of Julie Belcher @pioneerhouse started her own letterpress company in Knoxville (Woo! Reppin’ KTown!) In Laura’s own words “Camp Nevernice is shorthand for making the best of what you have and where you are - using the skills, cumulative experiences, and the tools you have in front of you to make something more beautiful and adventurous. It might not always be perfect, but you can always make it better.” We love that sentiment! Often the blocks that are carved for the posters Laura creates are reworked and repurposed for her other personal creative projects. All the illustrations are carved by hand using gauge tools, linoleum, wood, and a Vandercook Proof Press. Each print is original and most limited to their specific edition. Her work has even been translated into puzzle form by @truesouthpuzzle Even though Laura is now working back in East Nashville (we miss u Laura!), we still proudly carry a large selection of Camp Nevernice posters so come on down to the Old City and shop with us soon!

Rala

RALA is one of my absolute favorite stores in Knoxville! They have such unique creative goods & so many items you can buy to show off your love of all things East Tennessee. And their card selection? Superb. This is the only place I shop for cards for any occasion because all of their options are so funny/lovely/special. Their staff is also always so friendly & helpful every time I go in!
Great local art. Good sales. Cool stuff. I always go there or Farmer's Market to get gifts for people coming from out of town. Great staff.
Love Rala, it's a great place to support local artists. #buyrealart
Nice little shop that sells a lot of unique and quirky things that are adorable! Supports local artists.
The products are cool and unique but a little bit pricey. And I don’t know why the person asked me to show my ID when I paid with credit card? I just purchased a mini book tho. :/
