I’ve been gathering information about Small Businesses in town for a project that I’m working on and Wow! was I surprised to see the shockingly LOW amount of area home decor resources that I could find online. Where are you!?
Hickory, NC is seemingly brimming with opportunity for great Design Finds. Nestled amongst our sock factories and textile mills – we have a booming population of experienced furniture manufacturers employed by the companies whose products we drool over on our Design Blogs… (Mitchell Gold & Bob Williams, Williams Sonoma, West Elm, Broyhill, Hickory Chair, etc. etc.) So – these products make their way into Furniture Outlets peppered throughout the county, and if you are a super deal scavenger (like me), you can visit local thrift stores or Manufacturer Sales and steal furniture…….
Its all very fantastic and I really want to be able to tell you when its happening, and I wanna know when its happening in other cities here in my great state. Right now I’m relying on Indie N.C. to keep me apprised and well, I’m over here on the Western side of the State.
SO – This post is a plea to any North Carolina readers to take a few moments to jot down the retailers, thrift shops, and events that I shouldn’t miss in your area. It’ll be a long time in the making – but TEOT’s Official North Carolina City Shopping Guides for the Home Decor & Design Enthusiast are in the making! Please email me with information you think I should have at [email protected]
And now a quick word from our sponsors!
