Lisa Rieves is the visionary behind this quaint corner of Vinings, where the front steps read “Every so often, go where you can hear a screen door slam shut”. Creating a destination shopping experience has been a goal of hers since opening The Front Porch of Vinings in 2015. Making you feel welcome, it takes you back to a simpler time when the local shops knew your name and you’d run into all your neighbors.
Lisa is an entrepreneur at heart and has spent most of her adult life creating businesses. Her passion for small business and shopping local is obvious the minute you enter. She takes pride in choosing every item you see, to pull together a special collection of things that will make your experience a one-of-a-kind delight.
Owning the land that the shops sit on and a Vinings resident herself, Lisa lives only minutes from the corner and has deep roots in the community and giving back. When she isn’t working on the businesses, she loves spending time with her family, going to the beach, working out and digging in the dirt. She thinks she’s one of the luckiest girls in the world who gets to wake up next to the man of her dreams and spend her days doing what she loves! God is good!
