The building restoration is top notch and so is the selections of products in the store. Great addition to Winnsboro when shopping for a unique gift for yourself or someone else.

Thank you for your wonderful review. We are glad you feel the same way that we do about this old gem built in two phases 1893 and 1903. If walls could talk, right? Come back to see us. Thanks again. Janice

You will love this place! They have such lovely little bobles and bits. Chocolates, ladies attire, paint and technique on how to achieve beautiful effects. Wonderful decor for your lake home or vacation home. This shop makes an elegant addition to Winnsboro.
