History of Our Store
The Puckett sisters grew up surrounded by antiques. Our grandmother was and our mother still is an avid collector. We have fond memories of antiquing trips to Galena, flea markets and garage sale-ing with our grandmother and mother. So it was only natural that the love of the old was passed down to us. We have both often talked of owning a store and about a year ago, we decided in earnest to do it. We looked high and low for the perfect storefront. We knew we wanted something old and charming and recalled the cute little candy store from our childhood. We both have fond memories of riding our bikes to Bloom’s Candy store on warm summer days. We drove by the building. The windows were boarded up and it looked a little long in the tooth, but it was perfect. We called the owner the next day and started the journey to reopen the building as a storefront once again. Today, our cute little shop is filled with vintage finds and artisan goods - all the things we grew up loving and now can share with others.
