All are welcome at our emporium of fun and funk: drop by, kick back, shop, share story, and say hello! Long ago and far away Tripp’s Store was a community gathering place in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.
What was once a country gas station is now a reimagined EMPORIUM: vintage showroom, folk art gallery, acting school, and community flex space that celebrates diversity, art, books, music, education, and storytelling.
Founded for community outreach in the fall of 2019 by North Carolina native Emmy Award Winning Casting Director Tracy Kilpatrick and film actor Danielle Lyn, Tripp’s Store's outreach is to support local artists, diversify culture, educate, and remain a safe space for all. Our space hosts acting classes, writing workshops and special events while also home to our emporium of one of a kind hand stitched up-cycled sustainable clothing line Authentissimo, collection of folk art, books, vinyls, furniture, and vintage finds!
Mission Statement: Tripp’s Store outreach is community driven support for our local artists diversifying our culture, educating, and remaining a safe space for all gender identities, racial identities, and ages!
We are an all inclusive community space for all ages and identifying artists, creatives, and storytellers to gather, collaborate, grow, educate, promoting sustainability, exchanging materials, and encouraging one anothe'rs journey's. We host diverse inclusive events, partnering with local organizations, and small businesses : Red Bud Writing Group, TeleStudios, 401 Main to name a few. At Tripp's Store we instruct professional acting, art, and writing classes/workshops in the space along with pop up’s in the community, free music jams, free books, free recycling art materials swaps, and a brand new free food pantry.
Tripp's Store is home to two chartered little free libraries ft. a new accessible friendly children's library! We welcome our Chapel Hill neighbors to drop by our store parking lot and give a book, take a book as we believe accessibility to knowledge and storytelling is what weaves us closer as humankind. As of fall 2023, we are home to a brand new Little Free Pantry to support our neighbors in the fight against hunger and food insecurity.
