A giant Etsy shop meets an episode of Fixer Upper. That’s what you can expect from Twigg & Co. — the new artisan market that’s set to open on U.S. 1 in Aberdeen in the early fall.
From what we’ve gathered, Twigg & Co. will be like an Etsy shop on steroids, with local vendors selling everything from homemade soaps to handmade furniture. A craft beer bar will enable you to drink while you browse — much more fun than hunting for discounted frozen vegetables after a stop at Lowe’s Foods’ Beer Den.
Twigg & Co. will be located in the random building on U.S. 1 that just says “Antiques” in giant white letters (AKA, the former home of Town and Country Antiques). The building also housed a Chevrolet dealership in the 1920s and the Sandhills Citizen-Times newspaper in the late 80s and early 90s.
Not much has happened in the space in the past few years, but boss lady Molly Twigg is changing things up a bit in the building by restoring its unique 1920s architecture. She’s also adding a side entrance so you don’t have to risk your life turning across U.S. 1.
Molly owned a similar artist market in Georgia, but sold it after her husband was relocated to the Sandhills from Fort Benning. A military spouse, she started out as a vendor herself repurposing old pianos. Then as Molly puts it — “it all just spiraled out of control … in the best way.”
Molly put out a call for vendors in January and was greeted with an overwhelming response of people wanting to rent booths at Twigg & Co. Molly plans to jury products from her selected vendors to ensure that no two are selling the same thing.
