It's A Dog's Life
If you have visited Southern Accents in recent years, chances are you've been greeted, or checked out, by our resident patrol hound, Bobbie. If you've stopped by in the past few weeks you may have noticed that Bobbie has a helper, a rescued chocolate lab puppy we're calling Chance. Most of the locals know Bobbie, they've passed her on the sidewalk, or witnessed her napping in the window, but most don't really know where Bobbie came from. They just know that she's always been around. And now she has a sidekick! Click Here to read the full story of Bobbie and Chance... or come on by the store, grab you an ice cold coke from the cooler and stay awhile. We'll tell you the story ourselves!
Been To The Gym Lately?
If you read Bobbie's full story you read a mention of the Gym. This old school gym has found new life as a warehouse for all our salvaged lumber. Quite often we will go in and tear out wood from old houses or barns that have been slated for demolition. The wood finds a temporary home at the Gym where it is de-nailed, measured, stacked, banded and readied for it's new life. Much of it gets refinished and re purposed as beautiful flooring. Some is used as wall coverings, as we will share with you next week when we post an update on The Green House. Odd pieces are used to build picture frames, bird houses, and all kinds of beautiful craft projects. We continually get pictures sent from customers showing us the beautiful things they have made with our old wood. Been to the gym lately? Maybe it's time you come on by and let us show you around!
