Knight's Store is open...

Good morning everyone! I'm excited to finally announce that Knight's Store is now open on etsy! 

Finally, an online version of the store my great grandfather ran at the turn of the century...

...and later became Knight's Store

...which my grandfather continued to run for years

will now carry pretty things for your home...

I have made all the items, some with the help of my husband,  as a tribute to authentic American country and the American country store -- all with the hope of encouraging people to buy American-made products. Etsy is a new venture for me, so I'm sure there will be some bugs to work out, but bear with me as I navigate through any issues.  Please come by and browse what I have available.

Knight's Store on

I'll be linking up with Debra over at Common Ground for the Marketplace at Common Ground and Knick of Time Tuesday so be sure to go by there and visit!

Thank you so much for stopping by:-)

    What sweet creations. I've been wanting to make some burlap table runners with ruffles. Yours are gorgeous! I'm always intrigued by old black and white photos too, especially of people and their businesses back. How wonderful that you have those old photos.
