Oct. 30—– There's a sign up in front of Margaronas Mexican Restaurant on North Ashley Street which says "Las Brasas Mexican Cuisine Coming Soon."

She said the gallery mostly handles paintings but has a few three-dimensional artworks as well. The gallery also offers art supplies, a gift shop and painting and pottery classes. Iron Horse specializes in local artists, Pagola said. The gallery is open Tuesdays-Thursdays from 11 a.m.-6 p.m. and Saturdays from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. (BTW, "retiques" refers to repurposing antiques.) — A new jewelry store, REEDs Jewelers, plans a grand opening celebration in the Valdosta Mall Nov. 25, said its manager, Robyn Tolson.
