Farmhouse Cottage Company opened a new store at The Greene Town Center at the beginning of August.
Starting as a pop-up shop at The Greene last year, the modern farmhouse decor store’s first permanent location will open to customers at 5 p.m. Friday, said Karli Maynard, owner of Farmhouse Cottage Company.
“We did really well, so we did 12 days out there during their tree lighting…and we did really well then too, so we became a permanent tenant at The Greene,” she said.
The company first started when Maynard’s husband built a coffee table for their home, sparking his passion for woodworking, Maynard said.
As a pop-up shop, they focused on the furniture but also had some shirts and other boutique-style items from friends with their own businesses.
“We’re going to carry more this time — shirts, jewelry, just boutique accessories, candles, bath bombs and soap,” Maynard said.
Maynard hired one part-time employee to help at the shop located on Glengarry Drive across from Sephora. She said the company may expand in the future, but for now they are focused on being a small business and operating their Greene Town Center location.
