The Collective and Vine: Shopping local has never been easier

The Collective and Vine offers one of the most unique shopping experiences in downtown Statesboro, with its diverse inventory of handcrafted gifts, candles, soaps, apparel, accessories and more, all sourced from small, local businesses. Have a local product you would like to sell? They are now accepting new vendors.

Owner and entrepreneur behind The Collective and Vine brand at 39 West Main Street in downtown Statesboro, GA, Maria Proctor invites you to experience the artistry of the store, and shop from the products of nearly two dozen vendors. This storefront collaborates with independent businesses, giving them a space to reach consumers who are looking for more curated, meaningfully made items.

“We specialize in offering handcrafted items that celebrate craftsmanship, which are not typically found in larger, mainstream retail stores,” Proctor said.


The beauty of this mercantile model is that it prioritizes the customer shopping experience and each vendor's dedication to supporting a successful marketplace to host their items.

“By assembling a group of passionate and skilled individuals who share The Collective & Vine’s vision, we created a collaborative environment where ideas can flourish,” she said.


The personal touch of each vendor shines in every corner of the shop, and Proctor says it is The Collective’s goal to soon be able to set up an online marketplace where customers can shop products that are in the store.

Proctor says expanding the physical store is also a priority, as they work to open new locations in Statesboro and Savannah to reach more consumers who value the original, quality products that are a staple of The Collective and Vine. Also in the works are exclusive, in-house brands that will provide customers with items that cannot be found in any other store.


Most importantly, The Collective and Vine will continue to be a host of community events and a hub of business innovation. The merchants have led multiple in-store workshop events like the DIY Trucker Hat Party, Design Your Own Earrings, and Kids Cookie Decorating. 

“We’re currently accepting new vendors to broaden our range of unique, artisanal products and introduce new categories based on customer feedback,” Proctor said.

Prospective vendors can look forward to marketing opportunities through the brand's strong online presence, both on the official website and different social media accounts like Instagram, Facebook, and TikTok. The Collective also utilizes a Point of Sale system that allows the merchants to have access to their sales and inventory on a minute by minute basis.


As a new vendor with The Collective and Vine, you are joining a vast network of like minded entrepreneurs whose mission it is to continuously create, innovate, and engage the community through their businesses. 

Proctor thanks her mentors and support systems for the endless streams of knowledge and expertise they have poured into her along her journey over the last 13 years. She knows the integral role that collaboration has played in her career, and now wishes to guide others through the exciting journey of building a successful business.
