Remember when we met Molly Twigg, the owner of Twigg & Co.? Remember how she told us of her plans to turn the old Town and Country Antiques building, at 206 N Sandhills Blvd, into an artisan market? Well, it’s been less than three months since she purchased the building and we can officially confirm that Molly Twigg done did damn the thing. Twigg & Co. will open its doors for business on Sept. 14.
In under three months, Molly and her team have turned what was once a 1920s Chevy dealership (among other things) into a farmhouse-chic artisan market that’s bustling with creativity. She tore out the drop ceilings to expose the building’s antique bow trusses, installed new HVAC and electrical systems, painted the space’s exposed brick white, added multiple windows and doors and recruited 80+ vendors. Oh, and she’s also kept the public updated via Facebook every step of the way. We’re exhausted just thinking about it.
Bottom line, the giant Etsy shop of our wildest dreams is almost ready for action.
So, what can you expect from Twigg & Co.? We caught up with Molly less than two weeks away from the store’s grand opening for a little sneak peak.
First things first: when you walk through the front door, you can grab a basket because with all of the cute things in the store, you’re probably going to need one or two. Next, customers can head to the beer fridge and pick out a local brew to enjoy while shopping.
And now, behold: the booths. As of right now, there are more than 80 vendors at Twigg & Co. You can find everything from re-painted and hand-built furniture and a clothing boutique, to handmade candles and soaps.
Each booth is a representation of the vendor’s own unique style. Molly says prices were considered when choosing vendors, so you can find a cute AF “Gather” sign for your dining room and still be able to afford food to gather around.
The store opens at 10 a.m., and the first 25 customers will get a swag bag filled with all kinds of goodies. If you refuse to get out of bed until at least 11 a.m. on weekends, have no fear — the Twigg & Co. crew will be giving out random in-store prizes all day during the opening.
