Downtown Bastrop's newest shop, In The Sticks, opened just in time for the Heroes & Hotrods show Nov. 10.

Local business owner and artist Alan Barnette—who also started Prima Dora on South Congress in Austin—offers a range of merchandise made by artists, with an emphasis on artists from Central Texas.

The small storefront is filled with colorful items, from artwork to jewelry, candles, planters, books and much more.

Barnette said he enjoys curating the unique items for his shop, while also supporting the artists who make them.
