Alfie Edmonds, of the Decorator’s Market in Athens, Tennessee, welcomes guests into a lovely shop that exudes all the charm of a cozy English country cottage.
Tables and vignettes throughout the store spill over with unique home décor, porcelain and ceramic tableware, hand-painted furniture and gifts, garden items, and antiques
Much of the merchandise at the Decorator’s Market is displayed in and on the “I’m so Distressed Furniture” created by Edmonds’ husband and son, Jim and Mike. Shoppers can find tables, chairs, china hutches, mirrors, architectural items and other pieces in this quaint line. The pieces are warm, inviting and unusual. Many of the items have been re-purposed, which adds a winsome functionality that is both useful and unexpected.
