The town retains it's small town charm and it's main street is busy, in a slow Southern way. We come here every January. The best little store in town is Firefly...an eclectic mix of Southern antiques and new goodies you are not likely to see in any chain store.
Donwstairs...the antique pieces are used for displaying all sorts of wonders for sale. Upstairs...you will find true early Southern pieces, many from the plantations in the area.
Enjoy a stroll through Firefly...built from red Georgia clay bricks in the 1880's...the heart pine floors are wonderful!
...heart pine step back cupboard
Think I can strap this to the roof of the car?
Now upstairs for a look at some Southern high country pieces...
blue chair...green table
When I see a piece like this it reminds me of pieces in Mary Emmerling's book Country South...this is a very Southern piece from a plantation and was called "Grandaddy" by the family that owned it for generations.
This little guy came home with us...he's the only thing we could afford...no, he's not real, but he sure looks like he is...doesn't he?
Enjoy the evening,
