A new primitive décor store has opened in Jamestown, giving those primitive enthusiasts another option when shopping for that item of choice locally.
Star Bo's Primitive House and Gifts is on Hwy. 92, also known as Boat Dock Rd., two miles south of the square in Jamestown right past the old Anchor Inn.
The store opened for business Saturday and will continue to open Thursdays and Fridays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., according to owner Regena Hinton.
Hinton and Vickie Glenn, Cathy Johnson and Janet Tucker will run the store, which has been turned from a home into a packed primitive haven.
“We all just had an interest in it,” Hinton said of the décor. “It was just something we all wanted to do.”
She said going to the market and sales and finding items for the store wasn't just work, it was fun.
Hinton and the others go to different warehouses and a primitive market in Atlanta to find many of the items for sale in the new business.
“We have some stuff that's handmade,” she said. “We have a little bit of everything.”
A few of the items include picture frames, benches, Candleberry Candles and primitive houseware, among other things. She said the store would also have a seasonal feel, for example, in the summer there will be lake-oriented items.
There are six rooms in the store, each with a distinct appeal to it. For example, the bedroom has primitive bedroom houseware, the dining room has primitive dining houseware and so on.
“It is a great place to stop and get birthday gifts or wedding gifts,” Glenn said. “This really was a fun project.”
Hinton also said they will personally gift wrap items and will take care of funeral requests as well.
“We'll make it gift-ready,” she said. “You won't have to go get a bag and do it yourself.”
The ladies opened the store up in the fall because much of the primitive décor has a fall-feel to it. A grand opening for the store will occur next month, according to Hinton. The store can be reached at 270-343-2929 and accepts cash, checks, debit cards and Visa and Mastercards.
