I visit every shop in every town I pass on my way to Nashville. Well, when my husband is not with me. This was from a darling little shop in Nashville, TN. Most of the pieces in this shop were distressed by the owner. Each booth had a different color scheme. It was absolutely precious!
Of course, my favorite little shop is the one that I manage, my very own Cornerstone Treasures. The building is an old hotel from the turn of the century. Don't you just love the brick?
The little railroad town was my hometown. I can remember catching the Nancy Hank to Gordon for a field trip when I was in the 3rd grade. Most of the railroad towns have become "ghost towns" so to speak.
This is my favorite corner!
However, the local restoration committee is working on a grant with hope to restore some life to my hometown. Plans are underway to reconstruct the depot to its original splendor. A museum would promote business. Our small town is home to a flea market, two resale shops (including Cornerstone), a darling, children's consignment shop (The Mouse House), a fresh seafood hole-in-the wall, and a ladies and men dress shop.
This was built by my husband's great, grandfather. It needs some work, but it's great for display. No, it is NOT for sale:) Everyone asks!
With so many shops like ours closing all over the country, we are thankful for a great 6 months in business. It would be wonderful to have every building in in the town filled with good junk, don't you agree?
