Situated near the heart of Elwood is a quaint little shop, where everyone is invited to step inside, enjoy coffee, browse merchandise, receive hair and nail services, massages, or simply kick back and soak in some of the Gypsy Soul that’s so prevalent there.
Gypsy Soul, located at 114 South Anderson Street, is run by business partners Jackie Lane and Lana Nichols. Gypsy opened in May of 2015 andhas been a dream come true for both of them. They both say, “Gypsy Soul is a place where people can relax, decompress, and just enjoy.” Their motto is, “It’s a good day to have a good day.”
The coffee bar features a full menu of specialty coffee drinks and bottled sodas, along with a few packaged snacks. On Saturdays, they also have fresh Concannon’s donuts to treat your taste buds!
Aside from coffee, Gypsy offers clothing (regular-plus size), shoes, accessories, beauty care items, toys, home goods and small furniture. For added flair, Gypsy has partnered with a few local craftspeople, such as Simple Man Repurposing, Troubled Leather, Recoup, and Jacob’s Candles to bring some of their uniquely handcrafted items to the store as well. Gypsy also offers girls’ nights out and special events, such as coffee and canvas, craft nights, an annual art show, and the list goes on.
Need a large space for a gathering such as a shower or birthday party? They have you covered as well. The upstairs features a gorgeous room with original wood floors that date back to the 1800’s that is available to rent.
Gypsy is not just a place to shop; it is also a place to get a hair make-over or massage. Lana Nichols and Taylor Ryan both work in the salon and offer a wide range of services from cuts to colors, to make-up and nails. Tuesday-Saturday walk-ins are welcome! Crystal Leavell is their resident massage therapist and is great at working out your kinks! She offers a range of massage lengths and types based on your needs.
