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!

Happy New Year - 2013

It is that time of year when we are all recuperating from the busy end-of-the-year holiday craziness. 

We have gotten our class schedule partially finished, and I will post it here as soon as it is done.

The first class currently on the schedule is for Saturday morning, January 19 from 9 - 11.  Terri will introduce you to the world of making polymer clay beads and cabochons.  The cost of this class is $20 and includes all of your materials.

That afternoon, Mary will help you make Valentines with her own special flair.

The 26th, in the morning, Cindy will have a version of the Accordion Card just right for Spring.

As usual, our ever-popular Crafting A-La-Carte is available in a variety of daytime and evening time-frames.

Book-lace
What is Crafting A-La-Carte?  It is time we have set-aside for a class, but we do not schedule anything until someone reserves that time.  The first person to reserve the time chooses what the topic will be and any others that sign up will take that class as well.  We have over 200 classes we can teach, please check our website for a list of classes & descriptions.  If you wish to see a photo, please let us know and we can send you one, or you can stop by to see.  We do need 24 hour advance notice for the A-La-Carte classes so we may be prepared.  Please note that there may be a small number of classes that we cannot do on that short a notice because of special supplies needed.

Remember, spaces fill fast, call today to reserve your space.


*** Heirloom Tickets for the Duluth, GA show are here for $6 each.***
