What makes your business special?

“We offer very personal service. And we have fun,” says owner Trisha Costello. “Maybe the having fun is most important. I think what sets us apart is that we help customers imagine what they’re looking at or what will work in their home. We’re also unique in that we allow customers to take things home and try them out. They have 24 hours to see how items work in their home, and nine times out of 10, they love it. ”

What’s the best thing about running a business in Guilford County?

“We’ve created an atmosphere where we get to see lots of old friends in the shop and make lots of new friends as well. It’s really a great area that’s full of interesting people. I think people here appreciate historical things, but mostly they just enjoy the thrill of the hunt. Coming in here is like going on a treasure hunt every time.”
