Harmony Society brings harmony to the High Street shop line-up (Review)

Check out the Harmony Society next time you are shopping on High Street.

Downtown Carlisle can be described as charming. It features several local businesses and stores. One newer but not as well known addition to the High Street line-up is Harmony Society.

A cute, artsy and down-to-earth shop that first opened in September of 2013, Harmony Society is run by shop owner Amber Martin.

The inspiration for Harmony Society came from the Pennsylvania Dutch. Martin wanted Harmony Society to have a meaningful name, so she took the name Harmony Society from the Harmonist Quakers that originated in Pennsylvania. The Harmonists were a communal group that supported themselves through farming. They were peaceful people and worked together as a community to be successful.

Martin said Harmony Society can be categorized as a “lifestyle shop” and their focus is on American-made and sustainable stuff.

Harmony Society also sells yarn and offers knitting classes to promote people to be more self-sufficient. Most of the items sold in Harmony are American-made or made by self-sufficient companies.

Senior Kija Chronister has shopped at Harmony Society before and said that,” It is very vintage and cute. I look forward to shopping there in the future!”

Harmony has many great things to offer. They sell vintage clothing, yarn, Baggu© bags, socks, hats/beanies, books, mugs, soaps, and much more.

Harmony Society is located at 136 West High Street in Carlisle. Stop by today to experience the magic!
