Beverly's Down the HIll

I am the owner of a small vintage, antique shop in Jamestown North Carolina, called "Beverly's Down the Hill."  Jamestown is nestled between to bigger cities, Greensboro, and High Point.  High Point, NC is known as the "Furniture Capital of the World"  Twice a year thousands of people from all over the world travel here to buy furniture for there stores.  At one time North Carolina was one of biggest furniture manufacture in the United States.  Now, most of the furniture you buy comes from China, and other foreign countries, leaving North Carolina out of the picture and lost jobs.  That is why it is important for my small store to carry local, or made in the USA furniture and decor.  We love going to estate sales, yard sales, flea markets and thrift stores to resell.  Marcia Joyce, my assistant is a very sharp talented gal, she not only paints furniture, faux finishes, venetian plaster,  but is quick to decorate a store or home in just a day.  We love to find old discarded furniture and give it a new life with a fresh coat of paint.  If you are ever in the area please seek us out!  We have just a little bit of everything for your home or office.
