A new bakery is now open at 114 Fifth Street N. in Columbus, next to Blade's Hair Salon.  


Slice of Heaven's Sweet Spot, owned by Christina Bradford, has a menu with a variety of baked goods, including casseroles, pies, cakes and cookies. The shop even makes homemade breads sometimes.  


Bradford said she bought the recipes from Peggie Strauss, who was the former owner of Cafe of Main and the Sweet Shop in Downtown Columbus. Bradford said although Strauss sold both her businesses, the new owners did not buy the recipes, leaving them there for the taking.  


Slice of Heaven will also be accepting Thanksgiving orders and requests- which is a helpful service for families who may not have as much success executing dessert with holiday meals. 


The bakery is open 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday. For order placements, call 662-368-2490.  


Everything begins and ends with a dab of paint at the new arts and crafts studio, Splatters, in Starkville.  


Santana Ware, owner of the studio, said her vision is to give Starkville residents and surrounding communities a new entertainment venue, while also providing a relaxing and artistic atmosphere.  


Splatters offers adult and children painting parties, and provides pre-sketched canvases, paint and paintbrushes. Other kids' craft parties offered are slime parties and Playdough parties. Specialty parties, which include glass or wood painting, are also available upon request.  


At the studio, each employee has a unique "studio name," which is indicative of their personality. For example, those attending a party could end up with "Spiritz," "Thrifty," or "Mellow" as the party instructor.  


Splatters is located at 122 N. Jackson St., and regular business hours are 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Wednesday, 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday, and on Sunday by appointment only.  


Also, Southeast Mississippi School Products is now open in Caledonia.  


The company installs playgrounds, bleachers, stage curtains, lockers and other office furniture for churches and schools across Mississippi, Alabama and Louisiana.  


Gina Pitts, president, said the company just installed a playground at New Hope Community Center and lockers at the Starkville High School baseball field.

Lastly, Mitchell Automotive in West Point changed its name and is now operating under Parker-McGill West Point. Parker-McGill now operates the West Point and Starkville location on Highway 12.
