New shops open at Salisbury Emporium
SALISBURY – Several new shops have opened this fall in the Salisbury Emporium, just in time for Christmas shopping, according to Mickey and Betty Black.
Salisbury Emporium is a multivendor collection of galleries and shops at 230 E. Kerr St., across from the Salisbury train station. It opened in 1993.
The 15,000-square-foot building features antiques, furniture, artwork, gifts, ceramics, Civil War and World War II relics, old signs, flags, Cheerwine collectibles and more.
The specialties at Phoebe’s Finds, opened by Susan Strickland-Bowers, are prints, glassware and silver-plated serving pieces, ceramics, accessories, and refurbished period furniture.
Shops such as Carole’s Monkeying Around offer filled earrings, refrigerator magnets, appetizer and cocktail picks, and wine-cork Christmas trees. Items feature the logos of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Duke University, North Carolina State University, Salisbury, and Cheerwine.
Cathy Leonard, formerly of Florida, has returned to her home of Salisbury and brought with her a love of country furniture and accessories. Leonard’s shop, Wrought Iron and Rust, features the country look as well as a wall of whimsical towels with everyday sayings.
Other vendors include Sassy Doors, The English Craftsman, Huff Man Caves, and Will’s Golden Goods.
