Member of the Week – Old Mercantile Antiques/Arkansas Handmade

The Greater Searcy County Chamber of Commerce announces Old Mercantile Antiques, and owner Laurie Gross in Leslie, Arkansas  has been chosen as the Member of the Week.

At Laurie’s shop, Old Mercantile Antiques and funky old stuff, you can find just about anything old, as long as it’s very cool. She has classic primitives, lovely glassware and pottery, and things you’ve probably never seen before!   Laurie really has an eye for unique items, and believes that almost anything old is worth enjoying.   Of course it’s an antique store, so everything isn’t perfect, but has character and patina that comes with age.

Laurie has just opened a new shop, named Arkansas Handmade, just down the street from Old Mercantile,  which is a shop that is filling fast with unique handmade items from craftspeople from all over Arkansas.  She has a great selection of  vintage oil paintings, quilts, glassware, baskets, jewelry and more.  She seems to be adding daily to the new shop and soon it will probably be as full with items as Old Mercantile.

Old Mercantile has some really unique items.  Touring the shop this afternoon was a great experience.   There is no way I can name all the items that I saw, but some things that caught my eye were the old phonograph’s, old kitchen cabinets, old lanterns, an old compass from a ship, many antique tools, spice cabinets, spool cabinets, great selection of old antique books, glassware including carnival glass, and even an old juke box.   She has quite an interesting collection.

She has an online store as well.   You can visit her site at www.old-merc.com to browse and even buy right there online.    Check  out the pictures of her shops below in our slide show.

To Contact Laurie at Old Mercantile, call 870-447-2731 or email.
