Latigo & Lace was started in 1992 as 6 ladies came together. With each of them bringing their own ideas, the place became the unique treasure we know it as today. As time went on, each of the ladies moved on to other adventures with Sara Walsh being the last of them. When Sarah decided it was time for her to move on as well, she almost closed the store. As Christi Levine was born and raised in Augusta, she just couldn’t bear to see the little store close. She and Jason decided to buy it in 2012 to keep the art filled treasure going.
Latigo & Lace currently has approximately 300 vendors, including Frank Hagel, Ron and Echo Ukrainetz, Kelly Peacock, Ross Mosher, Colleen Farnsworth, and Cathy Dombrovske. With a wide variety of items such as photography, paintings, unique jewelry, pottery, personal care products, and even used and collectable books. . They are quite full at the moment but always willing to look at new artists. They are open 7 days a week from 10am to 5pm, and closed January and February.
