Business Spotlight: The Mole Hole, Places to shop Somerset, Kentucky - Kentucky Photographers
We had the pleasure of visiting the Mole Hole yesterday and boy oh boy, why have I never been in there before? I am such a Santa Claus, meaning I LOVE to gift people things and this place is the ultimate shop for finding the perfect gift. Along with personalized and Kentucky inspired gifts, the Mole Hole also sells gourmet chocolate and serves alcohol to visiting patrons. So many months and details were put into making this building/shop what it is. For example, Amanda Brooks (a local artist) hand painted clouds into the skylight (see pictured.) They used some of the materials for the walls from the old Food Fair building that is currently being remodeled into something new. The Mole Hole is in the heart of downtown Somerset and you can feel the local love that just pours out of its walls. If you’re visiting Somerset, The Mole Hole should be at the top of your shopping list.
