April 14, 2010 12:00 AM When commercial real estate agent Stephanie Folsom set out to find a tenant for a shopping center, she had no idea it would lead to a new venture for herself. Folsom, partner/owner at Macon-based Coldwell Banker Commercial Eberhardt, & Barry Inc., was hired as leasing agent for Vineville Crossing Shopping Center at 4420 Forsyth Road, and she tried to find an existing ladies clothing business to go in a vacant spot. “There is no reason why a women’s clothing store should not be in that center,” Folsom said“I began talking to boutique stores in Macon, and it didn’t work for one reason or another.” Her search led her to Atlanta and she discovered fab’rik Boutique Inc., founded by Dana Spinola.

Folsom has hired a manager and three sales people, but she is still looking to hire a full-time salespersonAnyone interested can drop off a résumé at the store, she said “As a woman and as a shopper in town, I knew we didn’t have this,” Folsom said“And I knew there was a need for it because of the price point, and their quality, their style.” To contact writer Linda SMorris, call 744-4223.
