The quick answer is, The Red Door has condensed into one of their buildings, 116 Ram Cat Alley and now Green Springs is in the larger adjoining building, 120 Ram Cat Alley. Its the best of both worlds--with one front door, one register and one crew of friendly staff members to help, you get all of the American made and Fair Trade fun of Green Springs along with the home decor and lake living of The Red Door!
The longer answer: I opened Green Springs in October 2009, yep, right in middle of the Great Recession. Directly across the street was The Red Door, which was a large successful gift shop which opened in 2002. If you've ever been in Green Springs, you know that if we don't have what you're looking for, we encourage you to go to all the other wonderful shops on Ram Cat Alley and in downtown Seneca. There's room for all of us to be successful. Despite this philosophy of ours, many people were shocked to find out that The Red Door was owned by my parents. "Aren't your competing?" was a frequent question, but the answer is and was "nope! We have very different business models."
So, around 2021, my parents wanted to consolidate and work less. At that time Green Springs was utterly sick of the continuing saga of a roofing disaster at our rented building, and we moved into the larger building that was once The Red Door, allowing The Red Door to consolidate. After a few months of being in adjoining buildings, my parents realized they didn't have to be sitting there anymore, peace-d out and moved away to ensure that they really really retired. Now they get to enjoy being grandparents and I'm enjoying running both businesses.
