Local Shopping: The Corner Peddler
The Occasional Sale seems to be more popular than ever. If you are new to the concept, these are stores open occasionally (once or twice a month for instance) for several days in a row. The dealers restock daily while they are open, so selections are always changing and new treasures await every time you stop by. We have a few in Jordan too, and this weekend The Corner Peddler is open.
The Corner Peddler features primitives, some antique and some reproduction. Among the treasures you’ll find furniture, wall hangings, dolls and other home decor. One of my favorites are the battery operated candles – they really look like flickering candles – we have one in the Nicolin Room.
The Corner Peddler also features repurposed items like curtains made from kitchen towels, candle holders made from canning jars, and decorations made from dried fruit. You’ll be inspired.
Another great thing is the sales are often held in buildings that are as interesting as the inventory. The Corner Peddler is in Jordan’s Old City Hall building, complete with bars on the old jailhouse windows. Treasure hunting in unique places creates an experience beyond just shopping.
