Ideas for decorating rooms with beadboard and old window frames are displayed in her unique decorating style. Some of her finds are used by local artisans who repurpose such finds as old windows into hanging racks, holders of stained glass art and flowers, pot racks or coat racks. Many of the items are then sold in the store.
Even the location is special. Her husband's grandparents had once owned the building and its hardware store. Now the building is once more owned by family and sells vintage hardware items. And, yes, in the tradition of old country stores, there is an old Coke machine and a place to sit and visit.
You can see more of this store on Facebook. Let Chris know if you need an item and she will keep an eye out for you should she come across it. Also, let her know you read about her in this blog. And be sure to tell Mertie!
