Happy Monday!  Today we are excited to bring you one of our new favorites, The Karovan Bar!  The Karovan Bar is a unique mobile bar for hire that will come to your event, manage your bar operations, and serve food, cocktails, (and/or other beverages).  Call them for your next celebration –   birthday party, wedding, crawfish boil, rehearsal dinner, block party, backyard gathering, etc! We can’t wait to have them at one of our next Thimblepress events!  Check out our Q&A below with owner, Karey Evans and business partner, Leslie Carpenter.

. . .

What/who exactly is The Karovan?

(Karey): The Karovan Bar is a unique mobile bar for hire with lots of versatility. It is a custom made beauty (10 feet x 6 feet) with solid oak trim and countertops- classy with a vintage sophistication.

How did you get started and what was the inspiration to take the small business leap?

(Leslie): Karey was planning her son’s wedding, and she is all about creating a fun time for anyone that she entertains!  She was using a food truck theme for the rehearsal dinner, and saw an example of a ‘beverage bar” being done in Australia – sophisticated, retro, whimsy!  She researched (lots!), and was driven (always!), and found a manufacturer to create it.  We were having a conversation about it all, and I became excited (head over heels!) and committed, and we became business partners!  I adore the concept of having a fun way to enjoy each other in any setting!
(Karey):  We knew we were on the cutting edge of a great and new idea for Mississippi – so went took the leap!!

How does Mississippi play a role in your business?

(Karey): I think the younger generation in MS are open to new ideas. I think Fondren and the urban feel has played a big role in creating a place where people can be creative and be themselves. I really like that . I knew people would love the Karovan and it would catch on and appeal to everyone in MS.
(Leslie): Mississippi has the very best people – there is always a celebration, gathering, or party – it is perfect!

What are your goals for your brand?

(Karey): The goals for the Karovan Bar are to have fun, create an atmosphere that is special and unique for each event.
(Leslie): …and to provide a classy, special, and memorable “watering hole” allowing opportunities to visit, get to know each other, and meet new people!

IMG_3810

What is your background?

(Karey): I grew up in New Orleans and moved to Jackson in the early 80’s. I went to LSU and raised 3 boys.
(Leslie): Being a mom, teaching cooking classes, and catering.

Where do you find inspiration?

(Karey): I find inspiration in new, fun and different things. Things that are out of the box. Creative people and ideas!
(Leslie): I am inspired by any and everything in god’s creation!

What do you like to do when you aren’t at the office?

(Karey): I like to hang out with family and friends – also go to New Orleans!

What are your favorite places to shop and dine?

(Karey): I like to eat at Lou’s in Belhaven. I like sushi, so I go to Sushi Edo . I also like the restaurants in Fondren.

What are some of the reasons you call Mississippi home?

(Karey): Mississippi is home because of the people here and the close relationships we have here.
(Leslie): The people are what make it HOME!

IMG_3968

How do you think what you are doing is helping to shape your local community as well as the image of Mississippi?

(Karey): I think having the Karovan be a part of MS helps encourage people to be creative and follow their dreams and go out of the box. This is what makes life interesting and you meet wonderful creative people in the process.

Are you ready to have the Karovan at your next event?! We sure are! Find out more information below!

Happy September!!

We had the pleasure of interviewing Lyn Roberts, General Manager of Square Books in Oxford, MS! Notably known for their charming 1970’s building and a huge array of different books by authors all over the world, Square Books is a must-visit spot in Mississippi. Read on for more information and photos of this charming little and continually growing business!

What/who exactly is Square Books?

Square Books is an independent bookstore comprised of three storefronts, Square Books, Off Square Books and Square Books, Jr., located on the historic square in downtown Oxford, Mississippi.

How did you get started and what was the inspiration to take the small business leap?

In 1979, Richard & Lisa Howorth opened Square Books on the second story of one of the stores on the square.  After the store was established, and the business growing steadily, they purchased a building across the square with street level frontage and later added the other two stores.  Richard had been interested in opening a bookstore from a young age, and they thought that it was a shame that in William Faulkner’s home town there was no place to purchase his books.

How does Mississippi play a role in your business? 

Square Books celebrates Mississippi’s tradition of  literature and Mississippi storytellers past and present.  An entire wall in the front of the main store is devoted to books by and about Mississippians.  Square Books, however, stocks titles that are of national and international interest, so all readers will feel at home and be able to select their next book.

image1

What are your goals for your brand?

We want Square Books to be thought of as a bookstore providing excellent customer service with a staff that is knowledgeable and courteous in an atmosphere that is comfortable for patrons to browse.  

What is your background?

Richard Howorth grew up in Oxford and Lisa Howorth grew up in the Washington, D.C. area.  Lisa came to Oxford to study William Faulkner.  Together they worked at the Savile Book Shop in Washington to learn the business before they opened up their own shop in 1979.

Where do you find inspiration?

Working in a bookstore, one can’t help but be inspired–by the store patrons and readers, by writers past and present, by the publishers and editors and everyone who makes it possible for books to exist and enrich our lives and our world.

jrfront{Image of Square Books Jr, their children’s bookstore}

What do you like to do when you aren’t “at the office”? 

Read.

What are your favorite local places to shop and dine?

Unlike many small towns, the heart and main business district of Oxford is the square built around the old county courthouse.  The square is a vibrant place and has many stores and restaurants, all independently owned.   There are no franchises or chains on the square; every businesses is home grown.  This allows for a lot of variety and rich experiences.  

OffSquareBooksfront{image of OFF Square Books, extension of Square Books}

What are some of the reasons you call Mississippi home?

Mississippi is a hospitable state and people are friendly.  Storytelling runs strong here and the atmosphere encourages artistic creativity.  The past is not forgotten, and some of the state’s history is dark and troubled.  Mississippians today are aware of that and looking toward a future of unity among all Mississippians.  Sometimes there are state laws and actions that hinder us from moving toward that future, and may even drag us back, but we believe that the tide is strong and Mississippi will be united by our shared stories.

How do you think what you are doing is helping to shape your local community as well as the image of Mississippi?

Square Books provides a place for all to gather, to browse and to buy books.  Everyone is welcome and we endeavor to make available the books each reader wants for  their own education, entertainment and enlightenment.  We  host events for authors to read or discuss their work and help support a community that in turn supports the arts.

Charming, huh? Makes us want to take a quick trip to Oxford, grab a cup of coffee and sit on their porch for hours! Want to know more about Square Books, OFF Square Books or Square Books, Jr.? Check them out here!
