    by butterflykizzez04 Written May 27, 2014

    This is a cute little Shop..Located at 517 Main Street West, just past the Jackson Co. Courthouse and Fire Dept on Main Street. It is very easy to find.
    It is a small location. Actually part of the home. It is owned by an Elderly Couple. We met them and they are so friendly. They everything imaginable. I asked her where she got everything and she laughed.."It's all from her own personal collections"..she said they have been married for over 50 yrs and it's all from years of collecting, shopping and just enjoyment.

    She has lots of gorgeous collectibles.. Dishes, stemware, glassware, Art Deco, Wexford Crystal, It is actually amazing how much she has crammed into this small room...but it is well Displayed and prices well marketsid. She has so many nice things. I will definitely go back.

    On the outside is the larger items, tons of license plates, chairs, old bicycles, wash tubs, more glassware, stone jugs and jars..too much to name..If you are in the area you have to stop...browse and buy something you can't live without.

    They have a dog on the porch..their watch !!! Right, his name is Charlie and he is Red Rust long hair Pomeranian..and gorgeous... The owner is Anne and her husband Dale..they both enjoy talking and very very friendly so STOP ON IN...SUPPORT YOUR SMALL BUSINESS OWNERS...

    Tell them the lady from Nashville Sent you...she will just laugh..I told her I was going to write this review...she just laughed. She doesn't even own a computer, never worked one and didn't know about yelp.
