I was walking around the store this morning taking some new pictures to post when Robin, one of our consignors, came in with a load of goodies. We're always excited to see her stop in because that means she and her husband have been busy crafting . She brought us another of her awesome lap quilts (we were sold out again) some welcome pineapples, prim firecracker bowl fillers, candle huggers, some prim sheep (they each have their own personality), cooling racks and this adorable Uncle Sam. Whew! I think I got it all, if not I apologize Robin. You really outdid yourself this time. Each time you stop by something always manages to follow me home, this time I think it might just be Sam. Oh, I almost forgot, the treenware. We have had these bowls on order since mid January. Linda and Melissa didn't get to make the trip to the Atlanta buyers mart because of all the snow so got out all the catalogs and these bowls were the last of the January orders to come in but well worth the wait. They have the look of old dough bowls but not the hefty price tag that sometimes comes attached. Well I think that's about it for today. I think I'll save the pictures I took earlier this morning for another day. Linda and Melissa are off early tomorrow morning for the Liberty antique show. I've already given Linda my wish list, personal and for the store. So Karen and I will be holding down the fort for the day and anxiously waiting for the goodies I know they will find there. 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.

Our tallow berries were a hit this year, only seven bundles left!

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.
