Springtime In Southport

Rita Wheeler Easter Southport NC Springtime

This weekend was a busy time for our little town of Southport. Spring Festival in the park. Tents sheltering awesome homemade food & handmade crafts. This is such a great time because it says “come to Southport & soak up the sun & fun”. I love seeing the sidewalk full of happy faces & customers entering our door with their stories of where they are from. Tourists & locals make this town great. I’m so blessed to be a part of it. My store is across from the Southport water tower & between a restaurant & winery. It just doesn’t...

As a young girl growing up in Marietta, Georgia, I remember how important Easter was to my family. A time for spiritual uplifting & promise of eternal life.

The town lost several old trees, bridges &...

Happy 1st Day of Spring!

Rita Wheeler

This is my favorite day of the year!! 1st day of Spring. I love Springtime. I love flowers, plants, and all the beautiful accessories. It’s easy for me to stock my store this time of year. Ceramic frogs dressed in bright yellow raincoats, bunny rabbits as salt and pepper shakers and of course anything that looks like a bumblebee.  Many items are not on our website, but you can order from me by just saying “I saw this on Facebook and want it shipped...” I’m here to provide you with products and great customer service.  Enjoy our spring items and...
