[ Finding Balance in your everyday with a space you can just be ]



Carnes Collective is a collection of many lovely businesses housed under one tin ceiling in beautiful downtown Blair, Nebraska.

  1. Coffee Shop: Carnes Collective is an independent coffee shop located in Blair, Nebraska, started by Jane Bouwman whose goal is to change the way the community experiences their daily cup of coffee and tea. We believe that a quality cup of coffee or tea has the ability to ground you in the moment, awaken your senses and connect a person with pleasure. We strive to be a steward in our community by providing an inviting space that folks can just “be”. Our space and products are filled with mindfulness, thoughtful intention and love. Our passion lies in providing the best products from local vendors. We proudly serve coffee from Amateur Coffee (Omaha), Artemis Teas (Omaha), Blair Meat Market (Blair), Super Food blends from Prarie Star Botanicals as well as some house-made treats from Kiki’s Sweets and Treats, House-made Sandwiches, Soups and Salads. We offer a breakfast and lunch menu that is served all day as well as daily specials. We desire to be a destination when you need to step away from your everyday and come soak in our calm and peaceful environment while you enjoy our delicious offerings.

  2. Artisan Market: Tucked away in what seems to be a “Speak Easy” retail space. We have a collection of many things from local artists. We have everything from clothes, jewelry, essential oils, signs, soaps, furniture, crystals, and incense to name just some. The best part all of the items are made with love and intentions. This space gives local artists a place where they can display there makings so the public can see their products. Shopping local is so important for our community it helps to strengthen our economic base of our town.
