Meet our friends at "The Hamrick House"

Located directly behind Vintage Village in the little cottage you'll find

"The Hamrick House"

Open Thursdays & Fridays 10:30-5:30

(and special event times at the Village)

Mr. and Mrs. Hamrick might be familiar faces if you have been in the area for any length of time. Why, Mr. Hamrick was my 7th grade teacher and he hasn't changed a bit!

Both retired educators they have always collected fabulous finds both vintage and charming new treasures and after years of storage decided to offer up some prized possessions in
"The Hamrick House".

Still dedicated to our youth, still substitute teaching you might also run into either Mr. or Mrs. Hamrick at one of our local schools. They are the sweetest people ever!

Mr. Hamrick will tell you that it's the "Mrs." that has the flare for decorating. If he adds fresh treasures in her absence and has to move anything he does his best to "put things back just like she had them". Everything is so pretty, displayed to the T yet offering such a relaxed comfortable feeling. Makes you feel right at home!

Offering a darling assortment of seasonal decor in this charming little building they have done so much work on really puts you in the mood for the upcoming holidays. Instant inspiration we call it. I can hardly wait to see the Christmas finds.

Who doesn't need a charming old primitive cupboard for all seasons?

There are several pieces out back that would be perfect additions for the busy

entertaining holidays.

Go when you have some time to reminisce... there are plentiful stories of days gone by, tales of how they purchased many of these old pieces and if you're lucky you'll get to hear about some of the children they taught over the years. Not all are true by any means... Mr. Hamrick might just tarnish the "Hags" reputation telling stories of "sweetness". Don't believe those, he is simply being nice in an exaggerated sorta way (ha...).

We're delighted to have these lovely folks in the cottage out back ~ you'll love visiting with them so make plans to stop by the Village on a Thursday or Friday and make sure you save some time for a trip to

"The Hamrick House".

Happy Autumn,

♥ one vintage hag
