What and who is New Albany Social?

📷: Courtney Paris Photography 

So here we are... Kelly on the left, Beth on the right 

New Albany Social started as a page to showcase all of the wonderful places we have in downtown New Albany. 

Kelly started the page in August of 2017 with the hopes to bring people downtown and maybe have a couple events to help the cause. 

Kelly is a mother of three humans and three dogs. She works at Schmitt Furniture on the furniture corner of State and Main in New Albany 😉. Kelly has always been in love with downtown New Albany, even before it was cool. She remembers the excitement of seeing the purple florescent Wicks sign going up on State Street. 

Beth joined New Albany Social in April of 2018. Her first post about the lavender tea from Roadrunner Kitchen was so popular that Roadrunner ran out of cups. 

Beth is a single mom of a man child and a cat. But we don’t judge her because of the cat. She works at Chase Bank here in downtown and also lives downtown! She walks a lot. So if you see a post about walking, it’s her. Definitely not Kelly. 

So how can you help our cause? 

Like! Love! Comment! 

The more you do that, the more it spreads. The more it spreads, the more people see of our New Albany awesomeness. 

If you are a downtown business and want to be featured, let us know! We don’t charge to feature you. We do this in our free time with mostly our own money. We do get a wonderful gift every now and then that we appreciate so much. 

If you are a business and you want to sponsor events or posts, please let us know! 

You can reach us by messaging us on Facebook or by email:

2018 alleyway runway “Summer”

The first ever “alleyway runway” was so much fun Saturday! I hope everyone enjoyed it! 

Thank you to everyone who participated and really had fun with it. You all are awesome. From the stores gathering their looks and models, to the models who strutted their stuff down the alley, you all killed it. Thank you to Emily and Kat for somehow getting hair and makeup done! 

It would not have been possible without the help of Body & Brow Boutique who sponsored our awesome dj, DJ Joe Dubb. Also Seven Sages Financial Strategies and Strandz & Threadz for sponsoring Courtney Paris Photography. Also to Susan at Countryside Insurance and Mike Hall with the city for making the process so easy. Special thanks to Gospel Bird for stepping in and Cheif Bailey for helping and saving my butt when things went wrong. Y’all ♥️

I definitely learned a lot, I’ve never put on a fashion show. But it all came together and I loved it. I remember saying right before the show “I’m never doing this again” but of course the day after we were already making plans for the next one. 

Check out the video with all the awesome models and looks!
(Oh, and look at us with a YouTube channel now ☺️)
