Upscale kitchen, home store near downtown closing March 5

Kettle & Brine, the kitchen and housewares store that opened a few years ago in a small strip center on North Lamar Boulevard and 12th, announced this week that it would be closing soon.

Kettle & Brine is located at 904 W. 12th St. It will close on March 5, but the owner said in a newsletter that there are plans in the work for another location. Addie Broyles / American-Statesman

Since fall of 2015, owner Tarica Navarro stocked beautifully designed home goods that brought as much form as function into a home. In a newsletter a few days ago, she said that it was time to close the current location to focus on a sister brand called Kinn and possibly move into another location.

From the email:

Alas, it’s time to move on. You might have heard, big things are brewing for us this year. Growing pains are hard, and a part of that is closing down our beloved shop at 12th and Lamar. But fret not, you’ll still be able to buy your favorite things online. Stay tuned for our next location which will also house our up and coming new sister brand Kinn. Sign up for updates and write us your thoughts on where you would like to see us next!

The store won’t officially close until March 5, and you will still be able to shop for some of the products online at kettleandbrine.com.
