Celebrating 25 years!





Celebrating 25 years!

Anniversary Open House
Saturday, August 24, 2013
10 AM – 5:30 PM

Refreshments; Door Prizes; Make & Takes; and more…

Connie and Bill Earl opened The Mercantile for business on August 23, 1988
at 149 East Queen Street in  Pendleton, SC.
Over the years they were joined by two of their daughters; Terri Earl Brooks and
Cindy Earl Higgins, who both continue Connie’s dream today.

What began as a gift shop has evolved into a gift shop that also specializes in rubber stamping, paper arts and beading.  We still carry Gourmet Coffee Beans, Candles, Old Fashioned Candy, Toys, gifts and Greeting Cards.  Newer items include additional tabletop d├ęcor, hand crafted soaps and the return of gourmet food mixes. 
We also offer creative classes for all ages.

Please, come join us for the celebration!
