We've had a busy day here at the store but with a fresh set of batteries in the camera I was finally able to take a few more pictures of some of my favorite things. I think the salt glazed crocks speak for themselves, luv, luv them! I like the stacking boxes because you can hide a lot of clutter in them. It's hard to tell by the picture but the cabinet is sage green over white and a bit distressed, and again, I luv, luv this piece and firmly believe it needs to come home with me. I have the perfect spot for it. I love the old phone but man, have we ever came a long way. And yes, as you can see more crocks. What can I say, I'm loving the crocks right now, not sure what it is about the small preserves crock but I look at it every day. I like the jug because of the light brown color, it's very similar to the one I bought last week. The bunny/chick arrow replacement is simply cute, puts me in the mood for spring. Though I don't own any (yet) I love tins and scales of all types. So, I'm sure you can imagine that SOMETHING in this weeks posts will somehow follow me home. Be sure to check back, Linda and Melissa are going antiquing tomorrow and I've already given them my wish list. Till next time- Kimberly : )

I love the bunny head peaking out!

We have the largest selection of standard and garden flags, mailwraps and mats in town.
The spring/summer issue of Mercantile Gatherings arrived in the store this week and as promised this issue is bigger and better. Featuring a great little shop "Splinters and Rags" from right here in NC.

Country Comes To Town (located inside Carolina Window Fashions)
What started out as a hobby making crafts in 1985 has turned into an overwhelming amount of inventory. We opened as a small consignment craft shop on Hope Mills Rd. We then added curtains and blinds and continued to grow. A family run business, my daughter Melissa and I keep the store front running while my son Mike is busy
with estimates, installation
& the manufacturing of blinds. John, my husband, takes care of the bookkeeping & computers while still trying to keep us all straight. Our 6000 sq.ft. building packed to the hilt with primitive country items keeps Kim & Karen busy with decorating.
