Art Wear.

Co-owners: Robert and Tammi Powell

Address: 3929 McCain Blvd., North Little Rock, 72116, 228-9970

Start-up date: Jan. 24

Tammi and Robert Powell recently moved back to Arkansas from San Antonio, Texas, where they operated a successful T-shirt shop called Art Wear.

In January, the couple reopened Art Wear at McCain Mall in North Little Rock.

The business operates out of a mall cart.

The Powells sell hand-painted and screen-printed T-shirts and clothing. Tammi Powell says Art Wear's most popular item is a $17 T-shirt decorated with hologram glitter, which changes colors in light.

Art Wear offers 15 designs, but that number should double soon.

"Since we're in Arkansas, we realize we need to do more designs that appeal to Arkansans, like deer and ducks and Razorbacks," Tammi Powell says.

Custom screen printing and wholesale prices are available for bulk orders.

The couple hopes to open mall carts at Park Plaza in Little Rock and the Hot Springs Mall in coming months.

"When you are new to an area, it's best to start out in a mall cart," Tammi Powell says. "That way people will kind of trip over you and take notice."

She says the couple's San Antonio store, which had two employees, grossed an average of $10,000 per month during its two years in business.
