Vashon Intuitive Arts (VIA) has recently expanded into the space vacated by Vashon Tech Support.
VIA, now in its fifth year in a building close to the north edge of town, calls itself a center for personal growth. It offers a retail space, lending library, community rental space and a variety of classes and events and participates in the monthly art tour. Additionally, massage practitioners and psychics practice there, said Lorna Cunningham, who owns the business with Susan Pitiger and Dianna Ammon.
With the increased space, Cunningham said they have relocated their library, giving them more space in the event room. They plan to increase what they sell, and they have space now for a quiet room, where Cunningham said she and other psychics can conduct their psychic readings.
“It’s been amazing,” she said. “Somehow it has brought a lot of business into the shop.”
While work is still in progress, Cunningham said they were able to unveil their new space, which she said feels transformed, in time for the Strawberry Festival.
Cunningham said they want VIA to be a place for the community and conduct many classes and events there on a donation basis, making them affordable to all people.
“It’s supported by the universe and community. What can I say,” she added.
