Bed-Stuy Couple Brings New Home Decor Shop to Former True South Storefront
Bedford-Stuyvesant, NY – A new home decor and gift shop is opening just in time for the holidays in Bed-Stuy, occupying a storefront that fomerly housed an independent black history bookstore.
Peace & Riot Pop-Up is owned by longtime Bed-Stuy resident and business owner Achuziam Maha and husband Lionel Sanchez, who say they’re trying to fill a void for everyday gifts like greeting cards, candles and bath and beauty products.
“We’re really trying to fill a lot of holes I think are in this neighborhood,” said Maha, who previously owned the African home decor shop Ibo Landing. “We can’t fill everything, but I definitely want to fill some of them.”
