The Gallery, Shabby Shack merge
Posted: Tuesday, October 30, 2012 12:02 am
Georgianna Scarborough and Stacy Jordan have joined forces to create one of Union City’s most unique shopping experiences — The Gallery and Shabby Shack at the Gallery.
The two businesses are located under one roof, at 621 East Reelfoot Ave., next door to The Fashion Center.
“We’ve merged our talents and resources to offer a wider range of merchandise and services,” Mrs. Scarborough said.
For years, she has operated the former Yard Sale Gallery at locations around town.
Likewise, Mrs. Jordan has been in business for several years at various locations in Union City.
Now, the two entrepreneurs have united their businesses and the result is an eclectic mix of merchandise including antique jewelry, furniture, wall clocks, wall mirrors, toys, framed prints, old tools, a variety of kitchen items, glassware, pottery, books, dolls, music items, collectibles, office furniture and even a handbag wall.
Customers begin their experience outside the store, where the front wall is covered by a mix of antiques and repurposed items.
The journey through the store weaves through the front showroom area and continues through the expansive warehouse in the back.
There’s hardly any space that isn’t filled with items collected from estate sales, eBay acquisitions, auctions and consignment.
Mrs. Scarborough is quick to point out the businesses also feature a unique collection of architectural salvage items and repurposed furniture.
The building itself is historically significant.
It is the first location of Union City’s Dixie Gun Works, which is now located just down the road off Reelfoot Avenue.
The Gallery and Shabby Shack at the Gallery is much more than simply an indoor mall.
The 10,000-square-foot-building can host special events and meetings and the staff offers a variety of services, including consignment sales, on- and off-site auctions, resale preparation, eBay listings, construction, demolition, dirt and gravel work and EPA asbestos inspections through Mrs. Scarborough’s husband, Dennis Scarborough.
The store is open from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays and from 1-5 p.m. on Sundays.
The telephone number for the businesses is 885-8151.
“Georgianna and Stacy both have a passion for their work and take great pride in providing you with a very unique and memorable experience,” a business brochure states.
“Georgianna Scarb-orough and her staff welcome you to their amazing shopping adventure. Formerly the Yard Sale Gallery, The Gallery has all the same wonderful collectibles but now in a bigger building with more merchandise, including Stacy Jordan and her staff with the Shabby Shack at the Gallery.”
