GA!: Nan, for those that haven’t been yet- what is Blythe Gallery?
Nan: Our shop specializes in unique items for your home. You can find a beautiful antique English chest, a great transitional pottery lamp, art for your home and lots of unique Holiday decor. We are always searching for great antiques, well made new furniture and special accessories that personalize your home and bring it to life. Blythe Gallery is fortunate to be located in a wonderful old home on Main Street in historic Belmont. Each room is furnished with chests, chairs, lamps and accessories which gives our customer a feel for how these will look in their home. I believe this is helpful to buyers as huge showrooms can sometimes fool the eye when determining proportion.
GA!: What would do folks need to know, or would be surprised to learn, about Blythe Gallery?
Nan: Folks need to know that quality furnishings need not cost more than mass manufactured goods shipped into the states. We offer true antiques (items over 100 years old) but we also find vintage furniture made right here in North Carolina from the 20’s, 30’s and 40’s that is made of solid, kiln dried, hand carved wood that is built to last.
I think folks may be surprised to learn that we sell lots of gifts! In fact we specialize in “gifting” and now offer a Gift registry for folks getting married, having a baby, husbands wanting hints for Christmas, and birthday wishes! Our vendors search for unique, clever, or beautiful items that are reasonably priced. We arealways searching for new and fun items for our customers. This year, the singing hats seem to be one of our best sellers. They are fun for all ages.
Many regular shoppers know it is near Christmas when Scotty’s annual shipment of Benne wafers, cheese wafers and key lime cookies arrive. Yum! These unique cookies are made by a Charleston Bakery who has been turning out these goodies for over 100 years. A bag of these cookies makes such a great hostess gift, and they are already flying out the door.
