Some of the odds and endds that can be found at Common Folk's shop. NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The Common Folk Pop Up Shop is now open at the former Makers Mill space at 73 Main St.   Common Folk co-founder and creative director Jessica Sweeney said the artists' collective opened Phase 1 of their new headquarters on Small Business Saturday but have so much more planned for the new space.   "Phase 1 is complete and we are ready to open with retail, but we are really looking to do a lot more," she said.    Common Folk has been jumping around from location to location throughout its existence, which Sweeney said really did fit their nomadic nature.

I once knew a rock band, The Original Kounts, and, because lead singer Howard "Richard" Tepp was my best friend, I was sort of the manager for a while sometime in the late 1960s. That was before Bob Crewe's Larry Brown ("Tie a Yellow Ribbon") walked into Newark, N.J.'s Indian Pizzeria and heard Howie singing to the jukebox. I think I was eating a tuna sub. Well, before you could say rock star, Howie became Richard of Richard and The Young Lions, had a number one hit in Cleveland, Detroit and D.C. with his single, "Open up Your Door" and, as the apocrypha goes, might have also had a career-propelling hit in NYC were it not for the DJ strike.   No

If movies were cherished trinkets, director David Lowery's "The Old Man & the Gun," based on a true story and starring Robert Redford as the gentlemanly, senior citizen bank robber, Forrest Tucker, would deserve a place of honor in your cigar box. It is at once a sympathetically laced portrait of the legendary stickup man/jail escapist extraordinaire and a nostalgia-evoking paean to one of the last great movie stars.    We are warmly invited to again marvel at how Redford's handsomeness and signature humanitarianism have always seemed so magically inseparable.    We hook up with Forrest just shortly after his astonishing, much heralded escape from

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — A rewrite of the city ordinance on the role of the Public Arts Commission will go through further review as City Councilors and commission members grapple with the body's power over public art.    The General Government Committee has held several meetings over the past six weeks to revamp the ordinance after Mayor Thomas Bernard requested significant changes that PAC officials felt reduced them to a recommending body.     While earlier meetings had focused on tightening up and clarifying general language, Monday's meeting returned to the commission's role in authorizing and approving public art projects and how to square

Watching director Wash Westmoreland's "Colette," about the life and times of Gabrielle Colette, the heralded French literary figure whose celebrated "Claudine" novels were published under her husband's name, I feared I wasted my life by never having moved to Paris.    Such hyperbolic self-examination, while exaggerated for my own literary purposes here, is nonetheless proof of what a fine period piece this film is. Still, while boasting Keira Knightley in a superb title portraiture, those indifferent to belles-lettres and avant-garde sensibilities need not apply.   Truth be told, even this foppish reviewer felt that fifteen or so minutes of this
