What Does Your Gift Say?

What do our gifts say about us? We want them to say we are thoughtful, but are we always hitting the mark? For some of us, it requires thinking outside the box!

Hostess Gifts

If you are traveling out of the region, you might want to consider taking something from your home area like food or locally crafted goods such as pottery or woodwork. Other thoughtful ideas are things people can use every day, like napkins (with or without the napkin holder) or notecards from a local artist.

Wedding Gifts

Do you always buy off of a registry? Young people always need a lot of things, as most are setting up households for the first time. Think about a distinctive piece of pottery or a hand-turned serving bowl – a luxury that someone would likely not buy for themselves. Though gift cards are not considered by some to be thoughtful, sometimes gift certificates are the perfect gift. It is hard to buy art for someone else, so a gift certificate to a shop with art may be the perfect choice. This allows the new couple to buy that perfect piece to make their house a home.

Birthday Gifts

What does your friend love? From that special friend to the “thinking of you” gift, try to pick something that will make them smile each and every time they see it. Is it a floral arrangement, hand-crafted jewelry, a trinket for a shelf or table (think birds and bunnies!), or a garden stake or statuary?

At The Town Framery & Gifts, we are here to help you find that special gift for that special person in your life.

Sweetwater Main Street Opens New Doors!

The year 2018 is looking to be a banner year in historic downtown Sweetwater.  In the past few months, Sweetwater’s nationally accredited Main Street district has helped four new businesses open.  Building entrepreneurs is an important goal for the Sweetwater Main Street organization.  In partnership with the City of Sweetwater and funded in part with a grant through the State of TN Economic and Community Development, a formerly vacant building in downtown Sweetwater is being transformed into a business incubator.  The beautiful historic building, once known as the Carter Brick Mason Building, is owned by Sweetwater Architect Sam Moser.  His vision for the building has created space for a restaurant, coffee shop and bakery, a retail store, and several residential apartments in the future, as well as the relocation of his own architectural office.

Last fall the first business, Her Majesty Boutique, opened to much fanfare.  It hasn’t been unusual to see a line out the door of this trendy second floor boutique.  Clothing and apparel, jewelry, accessories, and more, as well as a new children’s line, Reign Couture, have drawn many new shoppers to downtown Sweetwater.  The shop is owned by Ashley Ingram, Miss Tennessee United States 2017.

“It’s a very good thing to have young, smart entrepreneurs in Sweetwater,” said Mayor Doyle Lowe. “We’re so glad to play a part in these businesses success.”

In January, Vittorino’s Italian Cucina Restaurant opened and has stayed busy even through the traditionally slow months of January and February.  The cuisine is fresh and made with love by owner Rosa.  The venue is beautiful and cozy.  Open Tuesday through Sunday, a meal in Vittorino’s Italian Cucina Restaurant is well worth the trip to Sweetwater.

March 1st welcomed the Cup Runneth Over Coffeehouse and Sweet Station Bake Shop.  The Coffehouse serves Crimson Cup coffee, as well as a variety of hot teas, espressos, cappuccinos, and more.  Paired with a treat or breakfast item from the Bake Shop, and this stop is a must when visiting Sweetwater.  The eclectic interior spotlights the original brick walls and locally made countertops, tables, and chairs.  A space was created for live entertainment, and the back section of the building has a meeting room available for parties and gatherings.

Several years ago the Sweetwater Main Street organization hired a consultant for a master plan as part of a grant through the East TN Foundation.  The process of creating the master plan identified several goals for downtown Sweetwater.  Some of those goals included a restaurant serving pizza that more locals would support, businesses that stayed open past 5 pm, and a coffee shop.

“These new ventures are a clear fulfillment of several long-term goals, and it’s exciting to watch,” said Jane McGuire, Sweetwater Main Street Director. “We are so proud to play a part of this process.”

Sweetwater is home to so many unique shopping experiences and dining options.  These new businesses will help continue to draw visitors and locals alike and enhance what is already a great day trip.  So make plans to visit Sweetwater soon!

Premiere Consignment

Guy Coheleach Silent Auction

By Becky Hunt, Co-Owner of Premiere Consignment

There are very few days at Premiere Consignment in Tellico Village that I would describe as dull or boring. The vast variety of household items we accept for consignment, combined with the personalities and stories of both our consignors and customers, provide an endless source of fascinating stories. When you consider that the items we sell were acquired from throughout North America and occasionally from around the world as our consignors pursued their individual careers, and that many of the items we resell include antiques, as well as items that have been in some families for many generations, shopping at Premiere Consignment can be an adventure in itself. Retirees converge on the Tellico Lake area from all around the globe, bringing with them possessions they have acquired throughout their lifetimes, many of which find themselves at Premiere Consignment.

A perfect example is a Guy Coheleach print, “Western Puma Head,” which recently found its way to Premiere Consignment. Guy is an internationally renowned American wildlife artist. He was born in New York City in 1933, and his paintings have been exhibited in nearly two hundred shows and exhibitions worldwide, including the National Collection of Fine Art, the Royal Ontario Museum, Washington, D.C.’s Corcoran Gallery, and the White House. Guy has also been featured on PBS, has been the subject of two films, and has been the focus of articles in Reader’s Digest, Saturday Evening Post, National Wildlife Magazine, and Audubon, as well as numerous other publications.

The first print that we are offering is a Guy Coheleach print titled “Western Puma Head.” This print is double signed by the artist. We will accept bids now through March 31st. Enter with your name, phone number, and bid. The winner will be announced on April 1st. If you have interest in the other works of Guy Coheleach, let us know, as we have access to many of his most popular prints.

I would also like to personally invite you to visit our family at Premiere Consignment to discover your treasure.
