When Taylor Covert dreamed of operating her own specialty shop, she planned and saved for many years to make it happen. Her dream became a reality this January when she opened Home Norcross on Cemetery Street.
Business was good and folks loved Covert's sense of style reflected in the offerings of hand crafted home goods of soaps, kitchen towels, glasses formed from beer bottles, and especially the fine wood work of tables and chairs she has brought in from two Alabama artists.
"Shoppers always made a purchase whenever they figured out where the shop was," Covert noted, "the location was a little off the main streets and it was hard to get people in."
So Covert discussed this problem with ' organizing owner, Lorraine White, who has run that successful collection of shops for many years in its location at 109 S. Peachtree St.
White had a spot open up just when Covert dropped in.
"It just seemed like perfect timing," Covert said. "The hours I have to actually be in the shop are less than before, which is great because it allows me more time for my children."
Taylor and her husband, Lance, are local residents who moved to Norcross to enjoy the festivals, parks and other activities within walking distance of their home.
"Moving my Home shop helps me continue to enjoy working as well as fun stuff to do in my community while my children are small," Covert remarked enthusiastically.
Drop in and see how well the Home shop offerings fit in to the other shops like Funky Furnishings, also in Antique Traditions.
