The Painted Pot in Helena celebrated its 14th birthday on February 15, 2020.
The Painted Pot started in 2006 as a mother-daughter duo in a mall, with a goal to be in Downtown Helena. That goal was achieved about ten years ago. The Painted Pot moved to its current location downtown years later where, they say, will remain forever.
The Painted Pot was struggling to open its doors during the recession. The owner says perseverance and a great community brought them where they are today in 2020.
“I just can't thank our community enough. We have amazing customers here. We’re so lucky to have people that want to continue to come to our business and new people that keep finding us. We love it,” says Brianne Harrington, the owner of The Painted Pot.
Harrington’s advice for other businesses is to be involved in the community.
