The bARn Mercantile — "the general store for the not so general," its slogan says — will open in August in the space formerly occupied by Ten Thousand Villages at 301A President Clinton Ave.

The owners, Michelle and Leroy DuBre, the franchise owners of Kilwins candy and ice cream store at 415 Clinton, will turn the 1,720-square-foot space "into a modern, rustic mercantile, with a focus on Southern folk art tradition," a news release from Moses Tucker Real Estate said Thursday.

The DuBres will sell items by local artisans, T-shirts, cosmetics, gifts, soaps, candles, candies, clothes, "nostalgic candies," household items, toys and dog treats. The news release said the DuBres plan to eventually use the space for people to design their own art pieces.
