New inspiration on 48th & Cooper

Brian and Jo Newman, owners of Newman Creations home décor & gifts, originally opened in October of 2020 in Downtown Lincoln. One year later they relocated to the historic and eclectic College View area. It took a devastating situation to transform what once was a hobby into a dream come true. After Jo lost her job of 19 years due to the economic impacts of COVID-19, she decided it was time to focus on her dream of owning a business.

The store features an array of everyday decor, seasonal and gift items, but the woodworking duo’s own creations are truly one of a “find”. The Newman’s make cutting boards, trays, serving boards, wine bottle holders, coaster sets, cheese slicers, live edge furniture & more. They also partner with local artisans to showcase other handmade items such as locally made soaps, jewelry, embroidery work, weavings, and other seasonal creations.

Newman Creations is open Tuesday – Friday, 11am to 6pm, Saturday 10am to 4pm and Sunday 11am-3pm. You can also shop with them online at and to stay up to date on events and other promotions, follow them on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
