After more than two years of sitting empty, the 10,000 square-foot SHED location in Healdsburg may finally have a buyer.
Little Saint is slated to open in the hulking “modern grange” once owned by Doug Lipton and Cindy Daniel later this fall, according to a press release sent by San Francisco’s Saint Joseph’s Arts Society, an uber-chic arts incubator imagined by designer Ken Fulk and housed in a converted catholic church.
Though the owners have not been named, the project is launching as a non-profit arm of the Saint Joseph’s Art Foundation. Little Saint will be open to the public daily for all-day dining, retail and ticketed events. Acknowledging the vision of Lipton and Daniel, the new project will foster at least some of the ideals of its former owners by creating a space to talk about sustainability and support the local community. Plus some really cool art and music.
“Little Saint will continue the legacy of SHED by offering delicious food, unique retail and intriguing programming with an added focus on music and art,” according to the press release, adding that owners purchased the building to give back to their longtime home away from home.
