Inside/Out Shop Makes Its Debut in High Bridge
Recently opened on Main Street in High Bridge, Inside/Out, a shop offering a combination of mystical, whimsical, green, and handmade items, is the brainchild of Christina Lynn Whited, founder of the Circle of Intention School of Intuitive Sciences and the One Spirit Festival. The shop’s name celebrates the spiritual connection between heart and home, which describes Inside/Out’s offerings for the home and the yard. Hours are Thursday through Sunday from 11am to 6pm.
“I wanted to take the wonderful energy of the One Spirit Festival and extend it to a year-long celebration,” states Whited. “Everything in the shop should bring a smile to the face of those who enter: From the crystals, fairies and gnomes, to the whimsical 1940s puppy salt-and-pepper shakers, to all the very special handmade items, every element here is meant to bring joy.”
The shop also offers a broad selection of items related to angels and celestial motifs as well as inter-dimensional photos. Whited has even made angels for the yard from recycled wood. “I grew up watching my father transform ramshackle houses into magical homes through the artistry of his woodworking. My design abilities just seem to naturally flow in that direction as well.”
Whited is best known in design circles for her work recycling vintage chenille bedspreads into clothing and new items for the home, and in metaphysical circles for her work as a channel, healer, and teacher, through the Circle of Intention, which has offered a varied series of classes for the past six years, and the One Spirit Festival, a metaphysical and holistic fair held twice yearly in Clinton.
