Meet Melinda Townsend and Laura Forbes, co-owners of AR Workshop Laplata!

This dynamic duo comes from a long history of working hard and playing hard.  It has been a passion for this duo to bring something to Laplata that would add to the town positively.  Giving the community a fun activity to do any day of the week.  The idea of doing things yourself has always inspired them.  AR Workshop was just the type of boutique that could provide all these things to the town they love.
