Three fun businesses equaling 15K square feet: Talking Rock Pottery, JunkTiques, and Mary’s Monogramming and More
You’re in for a treat when you shop with these businesses, who have all relocated from previous locations in the area. Talking Rock Pottery took up retail space two-and-a-half years ago at Hidden Creek Village; Junktiques cozied in October 2014 and the new kid on the Hidden Creek Village block is Mary’s Monogramming and More, which moved into the new space in July. All three businesses are interesting draws for people who want customized and/or unique shopping, experiences. And the antiques lovers sigh over Junktiques.
Talking Rock Pottery offers just what you want and need for pottery classes. There is no need to travel all the way to Atlanta, when TRP stocks Standard, Laguna and High Water clay along with a line of glazes, tools and other supplies. TRP currently offers individual or group classes for pottery painting, hand-building clay classes, and wheel pottery for both children and adults. For those who are in search of a worthwhile creative addition to life, pottery making is a satisfying art. It’s also a rewarding family project to learn together.
Junktiques has been popular in the Jasper area for its collection of antiques, reclaimed furniture, shabby chic and primitives. They carry a line of linens/beddings such as C& F and Lava in a selection of sizes and colors. Junktiques also offers home décor such as new cabin bedding quilts, porch furniture, sought-after collectibles and hand-painted furniture. Junktiques, Jasper’s best kept secret, is the perfect place for gift buying.
Junktiques also carries the works of area artists: Kathe Hall, with 18+ years of creating mosaic art; Billy Roper, well-known Appalachian artist; Lynn Marie Dwyer, who creates pottery and other art, and there is Debbie Brownlee’s custom signs “and such.” There is also an array of junior artists who are featured. And on October 25th, Junktiques will host a meet-and-greet open house featuring Billy Roper from 2-5pm. Refreshments will be served and the public event is free of charge. Pass the word around because it might just be one of the finest autumn 2015 events in the north Georgia mountains.
Mary’s Monogramming and More is your monogramming and embroidery station for sports ware, company logos, sheets, towels, shirts, caps; corporate wear, gift giving, and spirit wear for a variety of teams such as soccer, dance, football, baseball, basketball. If you have something to customize with a monogram or embroidery, Mary’s can do it up in style for you. There are many ways to personalize your life with Mary’s custom designs. Mary’s offers the specialized touch, adding a little jazz to life.
