  A MUST SEE (and DO) .. in Downtown Red Boiling Springs!!
 The new Vision 2020 Office and “Step Back In Time Shop”.
What a blessing to have an "official" home for Vision 2020 Inc located on ‪‎MainStreet in Historic Downtown ‪‎Red Boiling Springs! Thanks to everyone … and I mean everyone … who worked many, many hours to make this vision a reality! Also wanted to take a moment to talk about the gift shop. This is not your usual run of the mill shop--all items available for sale are created by local artisans, craftsmen and crafters.  Some other items are on consignment and are donated. In addition, there are no employees--it is run completely by dedicated community volunteers. So what's the connection? All proceeds from the gift shop go directly toward the restoration and the creation of The Red Boiling Springs Heritage Museum. So swing on by to check out the cool one of a kind items--and shop knowing that you are supporting a worthwhile cause!
