Thomaston — Yet another new business has opened on Main Street in Thomaston.

Liis Massey, owner of Justine’s in Belfast, gave her insights into expanding to Thomaston and opened “Indigo,” a consignment clothing shop next to Thomaston Grocery.

Massey redesigned the former Highlands Cafe space and offers quality ladies' clothing and accessories.

She sees in Thomaston an opportunity to grow her business while being part of a retail community that supports each other and that is poised for renewal, Andrew Josephs of Main Street Matters said.

The newly formed nonprofit community development group held a ribbon-cutting ceremony for Indigo Nov. 17.

“It just feels good to be here. It’s about the people. I love it here," Massey told Josephs.

“Downtown Thomaston is coming alive again,” Josephs said.

Indigo joins Antiquarian Books at the corner of Main and Beechwood streets and Thomaston Cafe, under new ownership, which held a ribbon-cutting ceremony earlier this month.

The group plans more ribbon-cutting ceremonies in early December for a new 2-in-1 shop at the corner of Knox and Main (formerly Chambers Jewelers) by the dual names of "Moondance Art and Gifts" and "Thyme for Talk," a coffee shop.
