Featured Vendor: Cottage Whimsy

cottwhimsy300For more than one year, Gail Crowder’s Cottage Whimsy has been the spot to go in Rabbittown for unique items of Cottage Style furniture, florals and other uniques.

Crowder, of Danville, has been doing business for ten years and also routinely features items in the “Shabby Chic” style.

Antiquing and flea markets are a passion that runs in the family.

“My husband and I love going to flea markets. Each summer we go to Michigan three or four times and Florida in January. We often bring a truckload back to put in our shop,” Crowder told us.

Crowder’s business began at Queen Anne’s where her half of a room soon grew to two rooms. A year ago, she expanded her operation into her space at Rabbittown.
